A GENEROUS crowd had a ball as high-profile Coffs businessmen and women hit the dancefloor and made Dancing with the Stars on the Coffs Coast a huge hit.

The annual fundraiser for the Cancer Council, held each year on World Cancer Day, looks set to raise up to $60,000.

From rock and roll to hip hop, jive, salsa, cabaret, swing and tango the night had it all.

The Cancer Council's Donna Taylor said the local take on the reality hit Dancing with the Stars was again a sell-out.

A crowd of 450 people made the annual fundraiser a grand success.

Bishop Druitt College principal Alan Ball won the People's Choice Award with his broadway esemble and The Blues Brothers medley.

Glen Barnett won the Judge's nod of approval for his hip-hop set, while Jacquie Holden earned an honourable mention as the top fundraiser, raising $10,000 in sponsorship.

"The money is still coming in of course, but we look set to raise in the order of $55,000 and $60,000 which is an absolutely fantastic result," Ms Taylor said.

"The Coffs Coast community needs to be applauded for their support, it was such a great night," she said.
