12:00 am - 4:00 am
Come celebrate Orla Swift’s birthday at this benefit for her favorite non-profit organization. Orla’s generous spirit and great dancing have been part of this community for over a decade. All of the proceeds will go to CLAWS Inc., the local wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facility.
The party starts at 7 p.m. with a beginners’ East Coast Swing lesson taught by the Wonder-ful Kristy Milliken, teaming up with Mr. Awesome himself, Jason Sager of The Lindy Lab. Open dancing begins at 8 p.m. as Kristy moves to the DJ booth alongside Rockin’ Ray Crampton, giving us two of the finest and hardest-working DJs in the region. The music will be mostly swing, but in honor of Orla’s versatility as a dancer we’ll throw in a few extras: salsa, Texas 2-step, tango, waltz, and blues. But wait, there’s more!
At 9 p.m. we’ll take a short break to meet some of the animals whose lives CLAWS has saved. Getting face to face with these wild creatures could change your life.
We’re asking for a $10 donation at the door (if you’re strapped, give what you can; if you’re flush, feel free to give more). None of the party expenses will be deducted from your donations–100% of the money goes directly to CLAWS to rehabilitate more animals and return them to the wild.
If you can’t make the party, please consider making a donation in Orla’s name through the CLAWS website: http://www.nc-claws.org/.East coast swing, Swing
