The lowdown: A star-studded crowd raised over $1.1 million for the Center for Child Protection during the 10th annual Dancing with the Stars Austin fundraiser on December 4. Ten local celebrities danced the night away with professional partners, as judges Ed Clements, Barbara Chisholm, and Brian DeRoeck provided entertaining commentary. The duos grooved to everything from Spanish rhythm to 1980s pop music in an effort to secure the coveted mirror ball trophy. That award went to Jackie Mooney and professional partner Glen Ball for their Michael Jackson-inspired "Can You Feel It?" act.
