Eight community leaders danced for dollars during the 12th annual Boca’s Ballroom Battle, modeled after Dancing With the Stars. Dancers, who were paired with professionals from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Boca Raton, raised more than $640,000 for the George Snow Scholarship Fund, which grants four-year college scholarships to local students. The fund has granted more than $12.1 million in scholarships and support services since 1982.
