4 volunteer dancers raising funds for Covenant Hospice this weekend (GALLERY)

Each advance donation a dancer receives is added to his or her “account,” which is tallied up on event night along with those they receive from attendees following the performances, Perkins said.

"The fundraising strategy that each dancer employs is something they keep close to their chest, as is how much they’ve raised prior to the event," she said.

During "Casino Royale," each dancer will perform a 90-second choreographed routine with his or her Fred Astaire professional partner.

"While busting some cool moves on the dance floor is certainly part of a successful performance, the competition really isn’t so focused on the dance floor at all," Perkins said.

"Really, they are focused on raising awareness in the community of the important work Covenant Hospice does, and asking their fellow Crestview area residents to partner with them."
