Dancing Stars Gala raises money for Alzheimer’s

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One of KRQE News 13’s very own is boasting a third place finish in a local dance competition he spent months preparing for.

KRQE News 13 meteorologist John Smith was dancing like a pro Saturday during the 6th Annual Dancing Stars Gala at Hotel Albuquerque.

The theme of his dance — James Bond.

He was one of a handful of local celebrities raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association of New Mexico, a cause that means a lot to him.

“Alzheimer’s is such a devastating disease, not just for the person going through it but also for all of the loved ones around that person,” Smith said.

Smith says he had a lot of practice leading up to this and it paid off. He ended up finishing in third place.
