    From the Heart to the Hip (IL)

    Hi Everybody! I just wanted to share some information about an event coming up,
    that benefits a cause very near & dear to my heart- fighting homelessness.

    "From the Heart to the Hip"
    Zayna & Serafina present... From the Heart to the Hip || Elgin PADS fundraiser | charity event Elgin, Chicago, Illinois, IL
    is a fundraiser for the people of Elgin, IL that are homeless,
    recently jobless, or elderly on fixed incomes in an increased cost of living world.
    The Fundraiser takes place on Sunday, November 8, 2009
    Doors Open at 6pm, Show starts at 7pm
    at Elgin Academy's Sears Hall
    350 Park Street, Elgin, IL 60120

    Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door if available
    children under 9 are FREE!
    We also encourage everybody (if they can) to bring a needed item from the Elgin PADS or our Guest of Honor's need list.

    Besides a Wonderful BellyDance Show, there will be snacks & desserts served,
    raffle prizes, and a special guest of honor.
    The guest of honor is a local homeless woman who uses social media to get help for herself & other people who have found themselves homeless.

    If you are interested in performing at this event,
    please post here or email Serafina at: info (at) serafinadances (dot) net
    Performers do NOT need tickets!
    However we ask that you either bring an item or make a donation.

    Thanks for reading this post!

    Great event for a great cause! Much success to all of you - organizers and performers alike.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it either. No, I'm not traveling with Nilaja - couldn't fit in her luggage. It's the same day as my niece's bridal shower. But I'll promote the heck out of it to my students!

    I'm an idiot!! I thought this event was Saturday -- it's not -- it's SUNDAY!! (It really does help to READ the posts, doesn't it??) I think I can make it after all!! Yay!! Unless Nilaja gets a bigger suitcase, of course.

    I'd love to be a part of this if you still have room!

    If not, I'm still going to give you lots of publicity with my class in Geneva. It's great to have an event so close!

    Re: From the Heart to the Hip (IL)

    I'm having a brain fart moment... I'm trying to get my ticket via paypal, but I'm not sure who to send them to. (When I click the link, it takes me to my PayPal login, and then when I get in it doesn't automatically tell me where I'm sending funds to, if you know what I mean.)

    Please help!

    OMG, it was just working... d'oh! When Paypal makes changes to their site, it breaks all of our buttons for stuff. I'll have it up in a few min.
