01 Jun EMERGENCY Fundraiser
Dear Sweater Fish Supporters,
URGENT 5/31/18 – The Center for Contemporary Dance in Orlando, FLA which delivers outstanding dance education to children and families from underrepresented populations is facing a MAJOR budget crisis.
After hurricane Irma, many families that used their services had to pull back and this monetary offset has created a domino effect to this organization’s operational abilities.
They could lose their lease and their programs will vanish from the landscape without help. Read a quick summary about their incredible story on the Crowdrise Fundraising website.
Every little bit helps!
From the Director:

6/1/18: Okay everyone, step it up. They’ve raised $4,454 of $100,000 goal in about 48 hours, give back what you can, because if places like this can’t thrive, neither can art.
6/6/18: 12K in 8 days! That’s fabulous, but they have a long way to go until they reach equilibrium. Think about it, for every dollar you donate, you’re supporting a business that supports everyone, no matter what their creative dream is, no matter their limitations.
