ROANOKE (WSLS) – Dancers from across Southwest Virginia paid tribute to slain journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward. It was part of the annual Dancing With the Valley Stars event.
Saturday marked one month since Parker and Ward were gunned down during a live report at Smith Mountain Lake. During the “Dancing With the Valley Stars” people in the audience did the Hokey Pokey in honor of Adam Ward. Video tributes were also shown for Parker and Ward. Parker would have been a contestant this year.
Participants joined together to have donations raised in her honor. Proceeds from the event go toward the Salvation Army’s Turning Point Shelter.
