The 10th Anniversary Dancing with The Stars of 911 was held on November 2 at the Hellenic Centre in London, Ontario.

The event reached an all time high with 525 people in attendance and over $15,000.00 raised for the Dave Mounsey Memorial Fund.

The judges included: RCMP O Division Commanding Officer A/Commr. Jodie Boudreau, OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique, Canadian Armed Forces Lt. General Peter Devlin (retired), Global News Ottawa Bureau Chief Mercedes Stephenson and singer/songwriter Bob Reid.

Each year the Dave Mounsey Memorial Fund donates a defibrillator in memory of a fallen Canadian Armed Forces or RCMP regular member.

This year marked the second RCMP donation in remembrance of Cst. Michael Bernard Potvin who died on duty in a boating accident on July 13, 2010 in Mayo, Yukon.

Cpl. Mona Eichmann and Dr. Robert Seguin were one of the eight dance couples who competed at this year's event. They performed a tap routine to the song "Puttin' on the Ritz". The couple were thanked by OPP Sgt. Patrick Armstrong, Executive Director and Founder of the DWTS Committee for bringing "style" back to the event.

Mona and Robert greatly appreciate the support they received from family, friends and the Combined NCO's Mess. A special thank you is extended to all well-wishers, as well as to Toronto Dance Theatre dancer/choreographer Peter Kelly and Dance Steps instructor Sophia Noguera for providing the couple with a rewarding dance experience.
