The Harrisonburg-Rockingham Day Care Center is an exciting place be, not just because of the nearly 100 kids there, but because of Sunday night's "Dancing With the Stars" fundraiser event.

Executive Director Delores Jameson says they aimed high, hoping for $50,000.

She says they've been working hard just to make ends meet, and they need the money for things like tuition for lower-income children and class materials.

The Sunday evening event brought in more than $33,000.

"I am just astounded, just completely amazed. We shot high with the amount, but I never ever imagined we'd bring in this much money," says Jameson.

The money was raised through donations and ticket sales to Sunday night's dinner event where local stars danced.

WHSV's Melanie Lofton was one of the performers.
