CRESTVIEW — With time running out before Saturday's "Casino Royale"-themed Blue Jean Ball, four volunteer dancing "stars" are polishing their routines.

Friday evening, Bonnie Grundel, Laura Chamberlain and Steve Tuttle converged at the Main Street Fred Astaire dance studio to run through their respective dances.

However, their work to raise money for Covenant Hospice extends far beyond the studio's wood dance floor.

With Dr. James Stevens, the quartet are also subtly — and not-so-subtly — doing some old-fashioned arm-twisting to wring donations for the hospice from their respective supporters.

Last year's Dancing with the Crestview Stars netted more than $8,000 for Covenant Hospice, the service's development manager, Jenni Perkins, said.
