Local Girl Scouts Presents ‘Dancing with Our Monmouth and Ocean County Stars’ 

Girl Scouts Dancing Monmouth Ocean County Stars

Gail Grob and dancing partner Sean Nepvue take home the “People’s Choice Award” and Richard Givney, Susu Garcia, and her husband, Pedro, capture the “Grand Champion Award” at Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s 2018 Dancing with Our Monmouth and Ocean County Stars event Nov. 15, at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club.

Every year, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore celebrates our community’s business leaders and helps them unleash the dancer within at the annual Dancing With Our Monmouth and Ocean County Stars event.

During the 2018 event, Susu Garcia, signature program specialist at Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, was the judges’ selection for the Grand Champion Award. Garcia, unexpectedly performed with her husband, Pedro, who stepped in when her dancing partner was delayed by inclement weather. Long-time Girl Scout supporter and alumna Gale Grob, an employee at Ocean Medical Center, was top vote-getter from the public and earned the People’s Choice Award.

Also dancing for the Girl Scouts were: Robert Allison, partner at Hollman, Frenia, Allison, P.C., a local CPA firm; Thomas A. Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder director; and, Tom Devoy, co-host of the Thunder 106 morning show, “Pork Roll and Eggs.”

The “stars” were paired with professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios, Manasquan; the Middletown Arts Center; Shore DanceSport, Brick; and Shoreline Dance Academy, Ocean Grove. Arthur Murray Dance Centers in Red Bank also choregraphed and prepared a group of Girl Scouts who surprised the crowd with a “Flash Mob” dance to get the evening started.

Judges for the event were: Tom Grosse, Toms River Police Department, and Grand Champion of last year’s event; Jeremy Grunin, Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation; Tom Hayes, New Jersey Natural Gas; and Denise Gaffney, Monmouth Medical Center South Campus Foundation.
