It’s gettin’ hot in here! Oh wait .. wrong song. But watch the video of attorney Kathy Zickert and dance partner Desiree Nathanson workin’ it with a group of shirtless hunks at the 2017 EDIN Celebrity Dance Challenge and see if you agree.
The event, held last week at the Buckhead Theatre, raised more than $130,000.
Dr. Mark Beaty, who with dance partner Carrie Couch delighted the sold-out crowd with a tango, was crowned winner after raising more than $23,000 for EDIN, the Eating Disorder Information Network.
“As a physician, I encounter a lot of people who strive for physical perfection and struggle with eating disorders, ” said Beaty, a plastic surgeon. “When I was asked to participate this year and support an organization that serves this growing population, I said, ‘Sign me up.'”
Zickert, Nathanson and their backup beefcake brought the house down to “It’s Raining Men” and claimed second place and the Judges’ Choice Award. The fellas scooped up about $500 in cash donations while shakin’ their money makers. Nice!
Co-chairs were Meg Reggie, Cynthia Good and Sean O’Keefe.
Other dancers included Stacey Adams of Harry Norman, Tammy McCall Browning of Good Moves & Does It Dance, full-time mom Jennifer Champion, Tabitha Grant of Domino’s Pizza, Chef Todd Kulper of Doraku Sushi and Milly Marques of Brows by Milly.
EDIN was founded in 1996 by Atlanta psychologist Dina Zeckhausen and holds a variety of events throughout the year. For information see myedin.org.
