We had a beautiful event with more than 60 generous dancers and great music by Thierno Diop, Denny Stern, Larry Swanson, Shemayim Elohim and Lance Lu. AND we raised $3,500 that morning toward our goal to fully fund this project. It’s going to happen! It’s not too late for you to donate.
We are most grateful.

WASSA DANCE AND VILLAGE VOLUNTEERS’ 12TH ANNUAL
THANKS-GIVING DANCE BY DONATION.
Thursday morning November 26
9:00 – 10:00 am
Crown Hill Community Building Gym
(same building we’ve been meeting the past nine years, but across the hall. Shoes are fine in this space. )
9250 14th Ave, NW Seattle WA 98117 (Ballard)
Featuring some of Seattle’s finest percussionists & Lara of WASSA DANCE who will lead us in joyful African inspired movement!
This year we will dance to set up a goat dairy project with the Lenana Girls School in Kiminini, Kenya to produce goat dairy products and train students and future farmers in achieving livelihoods in sustainable agriculture. Our goal is to fund 8 goats (6 female and 2 male) and a shelter. The first offspring goats will be given to women farmers who will in turn do the same as this project develops and continues. We invite you to also keep it local by contributing a portion of your donation to Village Volunteers, who keeps all of these programs going throughout the year. You can designate the amount to each on the memo line of your check or a note with cash donations.
All donations are tax deductible and eligible for company matching funds. Can’t attend the event but want to contribute? You can still show your support – send a check with ‘Wassa Dance’ in the memo line to Village Volunteers at 5100 South Dawson, Ste 200, Seattle WA 98118
