Haiti Relief Fundraiser

The central Arkansas dance community turned out on February 6th for a salsa party and fundraiser for Haiti relief at Let’s Dance Studio. The event included free beginner and intermediate lessons and a drawing for dance lessons with local instructors.

Sarah Catherine Phillips, Andy Davis, Louie Bianco and Leah Patterson donated lessons and Leah gave a stellar salsa performance.

Tim Buffenbarger donated the studio space, allowing 100 percent of the proceeds to go to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. The event raised $790 for the fund and salsa dancers fave an additional $170 directly to relief organizations such as the Red cross and habitat for Humanity, bringing the total amoutn raised to $960.

Sarah and Andy would like to say thanks to everyone who participated in this event and made it a huge success!
