Stars in our community show off their skills on the dance floor Saturday during the annual Dancing With The Stars fundraiser for the Literacy Coalition of Howard County.

General admission is $50. There will be dinner, cash bar, silent auction and dancing entertainment from a group of local couples who've been practicing their ballroom dancing skills for 10 weeks.

2) Music with a message

Hear Spoken 4 Quartet perform a concert while enjoying a buffet dinner at The Grotto/Booster Club on Ind. 931 at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are $10.

Members of the group quit their full-time jobs in 2006 to spread the word of God through song. Spoken 4 has managed to work with some of the most renowned names in all of southern gospel music including Tommy Fairchild, Tim Riley, Jeff Steele, JD Miller and Danny Funderburk.

Their latest colaboration brings them together with award winning piano player Jeff Stice, who is producing their upcoming album. In 2008 the group found themselves nominated for the Horizon Group of the Year, and they've followed that success up with hits such as "He Knows Your Address" and "Who Can Afford To Be Wrong" among others.
