Special Event: Swingin' for a Good Cause - MOSAIC


Come and have fun at a Swing Dance with live bands.
It will be a blast and you will be helping MOSAIC to better serve the community.

All the money from ticket sales will go towards improving the Community Room, a facility that is well used by all sorts of arts and cultural groups.
This room desperately needs an upgrade. Money raised will go to the purchase of new tables and chairs, and other amenities for the room.

The dance is on Saturday June 11th and features 3 live bands!!!
Tickets are $25.00 and include a dance lesson/demo, snacks and prizes.

• Buy a ticket for yourself and join in the fun.
• Or promote the tickets to your friends, community groups, choirs... what have you!

"We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. I wish for all this to be marked on my body when I am dead. "
