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.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made this such a fantastic event!
