Behind the scenes as Erin Barnett prepares for Dancing with the Knoxville Stars

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.(WVLT) -- The work continues as I prepare for Dancing with the Knoxville Stars.

Thanks to my dance instructor, Jake Rivera, the routine is coming along. I am finally starting to feel more confident, but I am still pretty nervous.

More importantly, donations keep coming in. Thanks to our generous community, we have raised more than $2,000 for East Tennessee Children's Hospital. THANK YOU for your support!

We are having several fundraisers this week:

Tuesday, March 11 - Synergy Auto Wash on Kingston Pike. We'll be there from noon until 2 p.m.

Wednesday, March 12 - I will be celebrity serving at Bucket Head Tavern from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Thursday, March 13 - The Cupcakery from 11-1, several contestants for Dancing with the Knoxville Stars will compete in a cupcake war. Enjoy a cupcake and help out East Tennessee Children's Hospital!

Friday, March 14 - Painting with a Twist 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Enjoy an evening of painting with a purpose.
