Soul Fire Dance shook it up on the streets of the West Kootenay.
The aim was to raise awareness about violence against women and their children and to bring funds to local societies to support affiliated services.
Included in our local Shimmy Mob campaign are Castlegar & District Community Services Society, Nelson Community Services Centre and Trail Fair Society.
Donors were allowed the opportunity to designate which services they donate to.
Volunteers worked hard and diligently to learn the flash mob choreography, collect pledges individually and gather donations at our flash mob locations. This hard work resulted in the successful fund raising totalling $2475.
And all dancers and spectators had a fun a lively experience as well!
Soul Fire Dance is dedicated to supporting empowerment to women and inspiring self awareness and confidence through the sacred art of dance.
For women and their children who are experiencing abuse in their relationships, please access your local services for support.
For those wanting to help, please contact your local society to find out about volunteer opportunities in your community.
