SwingShift and the Stars Dance-Off for Charity is the brainchild of Judy Harrison, President and Owner of High Impact Productions. She is also the lead vocalist and creative manager for her band SwingShift. Judy was compelled to create an event that would combine two of her passions: music and philanthropy. Having attended plenty of fundraisers, she was convinced that “fun” needed to be reintroduced into charity fundraising, gala events and resource initiatives. She was sure that a fundraising event could be transformed into an irresistible experience for the donor. By combining a healthy dose of good-natured competition (Dancing With The Stars style) with an affordable opportunity for charities to educate the community about their mission and target demographic, she did just that.
