BENEFITING: Operation USA
EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2013
The Salsa dance community in South Florida has felt the devastation that the beautiful people of the Philippines recently suffered by the Typhoon Yolanda disaster. They are still suffering. They suffered the Typhoon itself and are now suffering in the aftermath. They have no homes, no food and no water. Many have lost members of their families; children left without parents and parents left without their children. Forced to sleep in horrendous conditions, out in the elements, next to the bodies of their loved ones, these beautiful people wonder what is next for them. They have no hope, they see no future, they have nothing.
The holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching us. They will have none this year. While we are sitting at a table with our loved ones and partaking of a meal celebrating our Thanksgiving Day, they will have nothing to be thankful for. In the abundance of our Christmas giving and shopping and celebrating, their will be no gift giving or celebrations for them.
As a dance community, let us open our hearts and give. Let's be the beacon of light in the midst of their darkness. Let us be their hope. A drop in the bucket but nonetheless, a drop. Let us dance and prove that the art of dance can be a powerful tool for expression, healing and salvation.
Nuevolution Dance Studios in Pembroke Pines has started this venture by having a Salsa Dance Social on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 10:00 p.m. We are asking for a donation of $12 each and ALL proceeds will be donated to the victims of the Typhoon Yolanda disaster in the Philippines.
Let us join our dance forces and become one in unity for this project. Please help the people of the Philippines.
D.j. Rivera has humbly offered his services as DJ for the party. Come out and show your love for the people in the Philippines.
