They’ll be dancing for The Garden Island/Zonta Christmas Fund next weekend.
“Dances in December,” Kauai Dance Theatre’s students winter showcase, is 4 p.m. Dec. 10 at Lihue Parish Hall next to Lihue United Church.
Proceeds from ticket sales, $5 at the door, will benefit the Christmas fund to help make the holidays brighter for our community members in need.
The concert will be about 40 minutes.
Efforts by the dancers will support people like Kyla, who lives at the family violence shelter because her dad was physically abusive to her mother for years before she finally left him.
Kyla’s mom is working as much as she can to be able to rent a safe place to live. Kyla can’t go home to the shelter until her mom gets off work, sometimes hours after school is out. The family has nothing but a few clothes they were able to bring from their house. Kyla needs clothing, bedding, school supplies and soon the family will need furniture and household supplies.
The Garden Island/Zonta Christmas Fund hopes to help during the holidays. Donations to the Christmas Fund will be distributed by Zonta Club members, who purchase gift certificates at local stores to make wishes come true.
Each donated dollar is accounted for and carefully recorded. There are no administrators collecting salaries. Volunteers run the show.
If you hold a fundraiser for the Christmas Fund or know of one, let us know and we’ll spread the word. Anyone making a donation of $50 or more may have their picture presenting the check to Zonta published in TGI.
The Garden Island/Zonta Christmas Fund was established in the early 1980s and has helped thousands of families.
Only monetary donations are accepted. Checks payable to Zonta Club of Kauai Foundation can be mailed to P.O. Box 3032, Lihue, HI 96766. For more information, call Dimples Kano at 822-4517.
