Dancing with the Needham Stars

In 2019, Needham Women’s Club cosponsored and produced Dancing with the Needham Stars in conjunction with the Needham Exchange Club. Fifteen members of the Needham community spent weeks working with professionals from Fred Astaire Studio in preparation for the big night. Online voting, a silent auction, and a wine grab raised funds for local charities. Over 600 people gathered at Moseley’s on the Charles in Dedham on April 6. Among the “Needham Stars” were Gemma Joyce, the owner and director of Total Eclipse Dance, and Jack McQuillan, the former owner of Taylor’s Stationery, while the panel of judges included Ed Harding from WCVB and Mike Andelman from the Phantom Gourmet.

Needham Women’s Club donated funds to the charitable organizations Birthday Wishes, Inc. and Second Step.

We hope to continue producing this successful fundraiser in future years. In the meantime, enjoy some pictures from past years!
