STAR: Diane Dearmore

Though she's a Texas native, Diane has made her home in Santa Rosa, California for the last several years. In addition to her 25-year career as a freelance court reporter, she has enjoyed being involved with a variety of theater company performances, including the Raven's 2 by 5, a revue of music and dance from Chicago and Cabaret; Thriller; M'Lynn in Steel Magnolias to name a few; and Faye in The Sugar Bean Sisters earning her a best actress nomination for Broadway World San Francisco Local in 2010. Diane has always enjoyed different styles of dance, and her goal was to someday learn and perform the tango. She is grateful to the Raven for, once again, giving her a wonderful opportunity. Diane would like to thank her professional partner Mark Novak for partnering with her for this event, and her family, friends and donors for their support!
