    Simply the best: The particpants in this year’s Rocking With The Stars celebrate after the competition at ILT Stadium Southland on Saturday night. The fundraising event paired 10 celebrity volunteers with rock ‘n’ roll dancers from the Invercargill club. More than $20,000 was raised, which would be divided between the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Southland Hospital and the club, event organiser Melanie Luke said.
