WAUSAU (WAOW) -

A fundraiser in Wausau took a unique turn. Wausau Police Chief Ben Bliven and Marathon County Sheriff Scott Parks had a dance-off Saturday evening to raise money for scholarships for Hmong students.

The event was called Dream Big 2056 and it's the third year they've fundraised for this cause.

"It's very important, the Hmong community always stress on education," said the co-chair Yee Leng Xiong.

Four students were awarded scholarships. There was also a dinner with a keynote speaker.

Organizers said they hope to continue to raise money for more scholarships in the future.

Chief Bliven did win the dance-off.
