Hurricane Relief Fundraiser at Rusty's Rhythm Club 9/14/05 with The Fabulous Esquires
"Dancers aren't made of their technique, but their passion."
WE DID IT!
WE RAISED $5,000 FOR THE AMERICAN RED CROSS
Yes, indeed, we did it! Last week we had the time of our lives dancing at the Rhythm Club to the Fabulous Esquires, bidding on fun Silent Auction items, buying raffle tickets AND raising much needed funds for the American Red Cross' Disaster Relief Fund to aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina and the terrible aftermath.
At the fundraiser itself we raised $3,200. But then more money kept coming in. Not only local Rhythm Club regulars (who had been unable to attend the fundraiser) sent in donations, but also people who get this weekly email from locales far off (Minnesota AND Australia!).

Then, Joel Plys, Balboa Rendezvous organizer, decided to turn his Saturday dance into a fundraiser and throw in the money with our pot. They raised $564!
So, here we are, one week after our fundraiser and we are now up to $5,000!
What can I say, except, once again "Thank you!"
