That’s right, according to TMZ, Dancing With The Stars cutie, Mark Ballas recently raised over $12k for charity by stripping! Mark Ballas reportedly volunteered some of his time to perform at the 4th Annual Avamar Foundation benefit in Warren, Ohio – representing The Beat of Ohio dance studio, but he forgot to pack a change of clothes! After his performance, Mark had to borrow a shirt from the event’s host, and then decided to put that shirt to good use.
Mark Ballas stripped out of the shirt, signed it, and decided to auction it off for the elderly charity. Sources told the site that Mark Ballas also threw in some front row VIP tickets to Dancing With The Stars, backstage passes and pictures with the other dance pros. Mark managed to rake in $12,500.00 for the charity during the two day event, all by himself allegedly. Kudos to Mark Ballas for his charity efforts, it is so nice to see that there are celebrities out there that do care about others!
