It's the 11th annual Hillside Food Outreach Dancing With Our Stars event, and it's happening this Saturday night in Danbury at the Ethan Allen Hotel.

Business and community leaders in Greater Danbury come together Saturday night to show off their sweet dance moves with the assistance of a professional Arthur Murray instructor. The event is to help raise money for the Hillside Food Outreach, and is one of the the organization's main fundraisers for the year.

The Hillside Food Outreach is working to end hunger in Fairfield, Westchester, and Putnam Counties. Each month, volunteers deliver food to over 2000 people who are struggling to make ends meet, and the Dancing With Our Stars event is a major contributor to stocking the food pantry shelves.

Here are some of the local stars who will be dancing this year:

There are a few ways in which you can help out. If you can't make it to the Ethan Allen Hotel Saturday night, you can always vote online.
