Boogie with the Stars
The “Stars” are all lining up, both figuratively and literally – BWTS Season 8 has all the promise of being the best yet! A New Year, with a New Cast, in a New Venue – you don’t want to miss it!
Our theme this time around is “The Roaring 20’s”. Yes, it’s been a hundred years since folks enjoyed “Stepping Out” in that wild and raucous era of dance, so as we enter our next 20’s decade, for one memorable evening, we all have an opportunity to relive the fun-filled energy and enthusiasm from those notorious years of the 1920’s.

Kyle Sampson couldn’t be any more excited to be representing The Prince George Hospice Society once again this year on the D-floor with his incredibly talented dance partner, Andrea Brown. Sampson is a Councillor in the City of Prince George, the Manager of Northern BC for Pacific Western Brewing Company, and is also a freelance entertainment industry/event professional. One of the more notable events he is a part of is Cariboo Rocks The North, an award-winning, three day music festival in Prince George. In addition to his work, he dedicates a large portion of his time and skills to a variety of groups, charities, non-for-profits, and major events within the community. Over the past few years Sampson has developed a passion for performing, largely thanks to Judy Russell and the wonderful people associated with her productions. His credits include; Nutcracker (2017), Cabaret (2018), Legally Blonde the Musical (2018), Beauty & The Beast (2019), and Nutcracker (2019). He is also the MC of a number of events in the community, and has competed (and kicked butt in) Boogie With The Stars twice before (2016 & 2018). Sampson is passionate about fundraising for Hospice, and is thankful to all of his and Andrea’s supporters. “I would like to thank each and every one of our sponsors and supporters for their financial support, all of which goes towards a well deserving cause, the PG Hospice Society.” Sampson says. “Thank you to the amazing Donna Flood for asking us to return this year to compete, to the unparalleled Diana Duchscherer for her incomparable support for us and our fundraising, and to everyone involved in making this event happen, including our much loved friends and family who are cheering us on. Look out, because Andrea and I are here to tear up this dance floor!”
As a charity dedicated to building healthy communities, we believe that health is a right, not a privilege which is why we do not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Our goal is to make health accessible by eliminating financial barriers to our community can be healthier and happier. That is why the YMCA raises funds all year, so we can provide financial assistance to those who need it most. 1 in 5 children requires financial assistance to participate in YMCA Camps and Programs. Our Annual Strong Kids Campaign makes our YMCA accessibility possible. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live healthier, happier lives.
