ST. LOUIS - It may not be on network TV, but Mercy's Cynthia Mercer, senior vice president of human resources and chief administrative officer, will be participating in Dancing with the St. Louis Stars on January 25. The gala benefits Independence Center, an organization committed to restoring the lives of adults with severe and persistent mental illness.
Mercer and her partner, professional dancer Michael Fitzgerald, will practice weekly leading up to the event. On the night of the event, the winning couple will be chosen by a combination of online votes as well as the crowd's votes and judges' scores tallied that evening.
To help Mercer win - and support Independence Center - visit www.dancingwiththestlouisstars.org and vote for her until Jan. 25. Each vote requires a donation, which benefits Independence Center. More information, including dancer interviews, practice sessions, fundraising leader board and tickets to the event, is available on the event site.
