On Sunday August 28th it’s going down! “Party for a Sister: House Jam for Large Marj” at Gotta Dance (3581 Dundas St. West, Toronto) is an event held to help out Marjory Smarth, who many consider a pioneer of House dance. Unfortunately, she has been battling cancer for the past 2 years. Of course, American medical bills are not exactly in the smallest of amounts, so we are gathering together to help house legend Marj (just as we did with Kool Herc not too long ago). It’s an all ages event and the suggested donation is 10$. There will be cupcakes, raffles, workshops, and more!
Let us all come together and raise money for this amazing woman who has given us so much through her talent and spirit. PARTY FOR A SISTER!
