Dining & Dancing in the Dark 2017

Scot Haney knocked the ball out of the park with his dance performance, but on this night his competition wasn't Joe Furey and Weather Watch, it was the five most dazzling women in all of Connecticut.  The 2017 Dining & Dancing in the Dark Champions are:  Amanda Raus (Fox CT) & Hanna Mordoh.

It may have been the most dazzling D&D yet, and the winners are the people all over CT who use CRIS services, as the night raised record amounts to help CRIS continue its mission.  READ MORE
