Westporters know and love Pete Romano for many things:
His civil engineering and site work for LandTech — including the redevelopment of Saugatuck. His involvement with Saugatuck Sweets, Westport’s 21st-century Ice Cream Parlor. His long years of volunteer work with Al’s Angels, PAL and many more organizations.
We do not, however, know and love Pete Romano for his dancing.
After this Saturday (April 9, 6:30 p.m., Rolling Hills Country Club), though, we might add that the list.
Pete will don his best duds, lace up his dance shoes, and join professional dancer Anna Belyavtseva in Elderhouse‘s “Dancing with the Stars” benefit.
The competition will be fierce — including Kitt Shapiro, founder and creator of “Simply Eartha” — but Pete is both a great competitor, and game.
His goal is $15,000 in pledges, to help the adult day care center that provides services to seniors coping with memory loss and other serious conditions.
And the next time you see Pete, tell him: “Shake a leg.”
