19JAN16 – Dovercourt Dances for Donations (DDD)

DANCES FOR DONATIONS at Dovercourt House is a coordinated fundraising effort in support the Ryerson Lifeline Syria Challenge group ‘Roots to Routes’ to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. It kicked off on Friday with the Hogtown Hoedown, and continues until the end of the month. For more details please see their Facebook Page.
