STAR: David Stare

David Stare was raised in Boston, is a graduate of MIT, and received his MBA from Northwestern University. After five years of working in the railroad industry (trains were his first love), he spent two years in Germany with a steel firm.

Dave founded Dry Creek Vineyard in Healdsburg in 1972, the first new winery in northern Sonoma County since prohibition. For 35 years, he ran the winery and is credited with many industry firsts. In 2006, Dave retired and now serves as the Board Chairman.

Davie is keen on philanthropy and serves as Board Chairman of Global Partners for Development, a non-profit with public health, water, and education projects in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. He is also on the Santa Rosa Symphony KRCB board.

He still has his love for trains, has rediscovered music, and today he can be found playing trombone in the New Horizonís Band and banjo with the Russian River Ramblers.

PRO: Megan Smith

Megan Smith has always had a passion for the performing arts. From age 11 to 18, she participated in several school theater productions. She discovered her love for ballroom dancing when she began taking lessons from Frank Flores in 2012. The pivotal decision to try something new quickly became an irrefutable sign that Megan had found the career she was destined for. She quit her day job to dedicate as much time and effort toward mastering ballroom and latin dancing. She is a teacher and director of the Ballroom program at WnY Warehouse in Novato, CA. Megan and her partner, Devin Davis, have performed at several showcases in Novato, Emeryville and San Jose. When she was approached with the opportunity to be one of the pros in the Dancing with the Stars fundraiser, she agreed without hesitation because she is delighted to contribute to a great cause!
