WCS DOG CANCER TREATMENT FUNDRAISER: Forte Friday the 13th!

WCS Dog Cancer Treatment Fundraiser

Hello Friendlies! As many of you know, my weimerainer Crosby was diagnosed with aggressive bone cancer last week. We amputated his front leg (the site of the tumor) and would like to begin chemo therapy as soon as he's healed. These treatments are extremely expensive. So I'm trying something different this month for Forte Friday, my 2nd-Friday-of-the-Month West Coast Swing dance held at my studio in Burlington: the two workshops and dance are FREE to any and all who wish to attend. I will have a bucket for donations; if you feel the classes were helpful, or the dance was fun, or have a love of animals and would like to help me afford his treatments, please give what you can. It doesn't matter if that's $1 or $20--every little bit will help! Please invite as many people as you like (I know many of you are out of town at the magical Montreal Westie Fest). The Intermediate class will focus on musicality! For those who plan on attending the 2nd Saturday WCS workshops I will be teaching in Wayland the following night the 14th, all classes will follow sequentially. So get ready to spend the weekend marinating yourself in musicality!!


Beginner WCS 7:45pm
Intermediate WCS 8:30pm
Social Dancing 9:30pm

Thank you in advance for your support!!
