Upcoming Drum/Dance Fundraiser for Local Injured Young Mom

On Saturday, December 1st, local dance and drum instructors Jessica Wittman and Monica Hofer will be holding a fundraising event at the Royston Community Hall at the corner of the Old Island Highway and Royston Road, just 5 minutes out of town. This fundraiser was originally planned in support of the annual Christmas party held for participants of the Healthy Families Program run through Comox Valley Family Services Association. However, one of the program's participants, Lee Ann Sami, was recently seriously injured and is in hospital in Victoria recuperating; in order to support the family at this time of need, funds raised through this dance and drum extravaganza will be directed towards Lee Ann and her family.
Jessica Wittman is a local fitness, dance and Zumba instructor who is an expert at getting large groups of people moving and grooving to the beat; Monica Hofer teaches African hand drumming classes and facilitates group drumming experiences in the Valley. They will be joined by a group of local women on drums, DrumDrama, who will provide live African grooves to accompany the dancers for a portion of the event.

If you enjoy moving your body joyfully and dancing to the rhythms of Africa, India, South America and many more, getting a good workout while having loads of fun, and feeling great about yourself while doing so, this is an encouraging and safe environment to do just that - whether it is your first time or whether you are already hooked on Zumba!
Please come out in support on December 1st from 11am - 12:30 pm - participation by donation.
