Dancing for Donations

Hello Everyone,

 Though Live Fit Studios, Inside Out Health and the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier we have organized an event Called Dancing for Dollars, it will be held on Saturday November 27th, 2010 from 1pm-5pm at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier. The event will provide networking opportunities Sales opportunities for small businesses (25$ per table) and a chance to try out a Zumba class. It is a socializing event to raise money for the Food for the Poverty Revolution ( With the help of Live Fit Studio and the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier we have received a lot of support and encouragement for this charity event.

 There will be two thirty minute drop in Zumba classes throughout the event, the cost is by donation with all proceeds going to FH Canada. For those of you who haven't tried a Zumba class, its a Latin infused American dance exercise, that is mainly cardio based with a party like environment. There is no co-ordination required, a good sense of humour is mandatory and a smile is all you need. Join the party... for more information, Each 30 minute class will take you through the basics of Zumba, with the patience and passion of Inna Ageeva our fully qualified Zumba instructor.

 Our goal is to raise enough money for a stable with cows, chickens and goats, a farming family will be provided with all the livestock they need. But it doesn’t stop there! This gift also comes with medical equipment, animal medication and access to a trained community veterinarian to check up on the animals. It’s truly a gift that transforms an empty stable into a flourishing farm. This gift is our goal, however, through generosity and the passion of people we would also like the chance to purchase sports equipment and school supplies, medical equipment and bikes. 

The reason I chose FH Canada as my charity is that its not just giving money to a charity, it is providing us with the ability to give useful, life changing, skill building opportunities to under privileged families who need a little boost. Fh Canada is about creating innovative, long-term solutions to overcoming poverty through 7 to 9 year partnerships focused on building thriving, sustainable communities in the thousands of impoverished communities around the world. Rather than giving handouts, they empower communities with the support, resources and training they require in order to become a self-sustaining community. Once a community graduates as self-sustaining, they are in turn able to teach neighboring communities to do the same, propagating a multiplying effect. Poverty Revolution provides everyone with the opportunity to get involved and make a tangible difference in the fight against poverty. It’s free to join and anyone can help a community become one step closer to achieving their goals by committing to partner with them and simply telling other people about the revolution to end poverty.   

Information: The event is on Saturday, November 27th, 2010 at 1:00pm - 5:00p, at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier, 138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver, V7L 0B1
