OCT12 – Gratitude

Feeling very grateful for dance and everything it brings to my life: physical exercise, a creative outlet, new challenges, laughter, memories, friendships, community – a kind of family.  Thank you so much or being a part of my extended dance family.

Thank you, too, for joining me in supporting the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) for the work they do for people who may not be as lucky as we are to have this outlet.

We have two official fundraising events this year and online donations are welcome, whether you can attend or not at: www.supportcamh.ca/TOWestCoast

If you *do* make a tax-deductible donation online prior to the Annual Benefit Dance on Tuesday, November 10th you’ll be added to the All-Star list, and get into the dance for FREE (Making All-Star has never been so easy! Suggested minimum donation at the door is $10)
We’ll also be selling Raffle Tickets – prize donations welcome – and the highlight of the evening will be an Open Division (meaning all levels) Jack & Jill Tournament – with some super, duper Grand Prizes: passes to the Toronto Open Swing & Hustle Championships, the Michigan Classic and Westie-Con.
Facebook Event – or please check the calendar

The other event is a clothing swap taking place on the Sunday afternoon just prior to the dance: Sunday, November 8th – also at the Dovercourt House, 3rd Floor from 2:00-5:00 p.m. – still plenty of time to get to Rhythm & Motion 🙂
$10 to participate, and everyone who comes will be entered into a draw to win a pass to the Sweet Side of Swing Northwest
Facebook Event – or please check the calendar
