The Westin had its hands full with another full house Saturday evening, where the annual Dancing with the Celebrities of Pittsburgh competition put the spotlight on bold names strutting across the ballroom. The event showcases months of painstakingly choreographed routines from professional dance instructors who also serve as partners.

Heather Abraham, Al Ambrosini, Christina Cochran (fan favorite), Richard DeFilippo, Gregg Giannotti, Lou "Geeg" Guarino III, Suzanne Hayden, Jari Jariwala, Bob Pompeani, Carl Reuter, Shannon Salicce (judges' favorite), Juliann Sheldon, Autumn Stewart and S. Rand Werrin rounded out this year's roster.

More than $300K was raised for Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center and the Kiwanis Club of Pittsburgh.
