Some of Shreveport's biggest names return this weekend for a good cause.
Are you headed to Dancing for the Cure this weekend? It's a night where local media personalities will compete with one another on the dance floor. They have been practicing for weeks on end to put on a great performance and raise money for Susan G. Komen. I've already got my ticket and hope to see you there as well.
Aside from those who will be competing, there are some other big names who will be in attendance.
This year's list of judges feature some of your favorite Shreveport products as well. Becca Tilley, from The Bachelor, will be in her home state to judge the competition. Becca was born and raised in Shreveport. She currently lives in Los Angeles where she continues to build her brand, while working on some new exciting projects.
Jacob Hester will also be on the judges panel. Jacob, a Shreveport native, played football at Evangel Christian Academy before heading off to play at LSU. He won a National Championship there. After being drafted to play in the NFL by the Chargers 2008, Jacob signed on to play for the Broncos in 2012.
The other judges are Ed Walsh who spent 10 years on the news desk at KTBS. He then worked for Caesar's Entertainment before taking a job with Gremillion & Pou Integrated Marketing in Shreveport. Jena Johnston is also a judge and an eleven-year breast cancer survivor. She's been a banker for 39 years and currently is the Vice President with Citizens National Band in Bossier City.
