Greensboro, NC -- There is nothing like a Saturday night of dancing, especially if you are dancing for a good cause.

That's exactly what was happening Saturday night at the Empire Room in downtown Greensboro.

Operation Smile, with a little help from WFMY News 2's Eric Chilton and some Triad-area celebrities, put on the 5th annual "Dancing with the Carolina Stars."

The dance-off raises money to help children in need of surgery that corrects facial deformities, like cleft lips and pallets.

"For a 45 minute operation to take care of these children, it takes them from a life of hopelessness to a life of hope," said Beth Marshall, Operation Smile.

Each surgery costs about $240.

Operation Smile raised more than $114,000 at Saturday night's sold-out event.

Matthew Rankin was the 2013 winner. He's the first man to win the competition.
