VIDEO | Shining Stars Dance Team says ‘Thanks’ following performance prior to Milw. Bucks game

Campbellsport, WI – The Shining Stars Dance Team of Campbellsport is now famous after performing at the pregame of the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Washington Wizards game.

Coach Mary Bilgo followed up with a note after an article was published to help the team raise money to fund the trip.

Hi Judy , yes we did raise enough money!  Your articles helped so so much!!!
We are so fortunate to live in a community that a lot of people know you and love the effort from all the volunteers to make this dance team a success.
Many civic organizations , business, clubs, friends, relatives, and complete strangers contributed to make this dream possible!

The Bucks organization and employees took such great care of us. While we walked to our tunnel to enter the floor, everyone gave our kids a high five as the walked out to perform.

One on the dancers said she felt so important like she’s was at an airport.  (They just make you smile).
Most of them said it was Awesome! They turned out the lights in the forum and put us in spotlights.

It just seemed magical,  the support from their families and friends that came to the forum were so loud and cheered them on!

Thank you, Mary Bilgo

The team has been practicing diligently for this moment in the spotlight, please wish them luck!
