2016 Dancing with the Stars Austin 2017-01-31T14:48:24+00:00


Dancing with the Stars Austin, presented by Lexus of Austin & Lakeway, provided a 10th anniversary to remember with competition, philanthropy and a raffle drawing, all to benefit Travis County child abuse victims. The entertainment-filled evening played host to nearly 1,000 people in the Hilton Austin’s Grand Ballroom and raised more than $1.1 million.

Inaugural event chairs Jeanne Parker and Venus Strawn returned for the 10th anniversary celebration and honored Maxine Roberts and Vicki Roberts for their advocacy and work to end the cycle of child abuse. Founding director and emcee Sabrina Truscott produced an exhilarating program of attention-grabbing performances, led by a group of 10 celebrity dancers and their professional partners. Judges Ed Clements, Barbara Chisholm and Brian DeRoeck added a fun and clever element to the show with their positive critiques of the dancers’ performances.

After 10 routines that brought the audience to their feet, Jackie Mooney and professional partner Glenn Ball’s Michael Jackson-inspired routine earned them the title of 2016 Dancing with the Stars Austin winners. First runner-up went to Erin Johnston and professional partner Randy Ferguson, while Johnson Vaughn Brock, performing on behalf of his father, Vaughn Brock, and professional partner Taylor Edwards were awarded second runner-up.
