Okay fine, not “now” – on Saturday! If the allure of 80s and 90s music doesn’t grab you, how about a great cause and amazing raffle? Read on! (and bring cash when you come)
With or without you
DECA is fundraising for our Young Leaders Scholarship with some retro fun. Just as fun as when you were a kid except minus the angst and plus a cash bar! #winning
This party is happening this Saturday, May 26 starting at 8:30pm at the East Masonic Temple, 13 Chisholm (Main/Danforth). That’s right, 8:30pm.
Music – makes the people – come together
As a neighbourhood association DECA was formed not to oppose, but to be FOR something – our community – and over the last 11 years we have volunteered hundreds of hours to make our corner of the city better. Nobody knows why it’s taken us 11 years to throw a dance party, but better late than never, right?
I believe the children are our future
We need young leaders who are willing to step up and make a difference in the spaces they live. To support these difference-makers the DECA Young Leaders Scholarship grants $2000 to a student entering post secondary schooling or training.
What a feeling
All proceeds from our door and raffle tickets, as well as our cash bar, will support the scholarship. DJ Jamie will be spinning jams from the 80s and 90s on vinyl from 8:30pm through 12:30am. That’s right people, we’re pretty much going all night long.
You can buy tickets via eventbrite or at the door the night of the event (note: cash only, like, really, because we are just volunteers who do not carry around interac machines in our giant mom purses).
There will be no rain but don’t blister in the sun, wear your sunglasses at night and if things go as planned, the ‘hood will smells like teen spirit come Sunday morning.
To support our efforts, some of our fabulous businesses along #DanforthEast have donated fabulous raffle prizes. These are awesome prizes that will stare you down saying don’t you want me baby. You’ll be buying so many tickets you’ll feel like you’re livin’ on a prayer but in a good way. Like Bon Jovi.
