The Philly Salsa Community has lost a dear friend in Mr. Eric Ebling, also known as Photo Eric. Unfortunately, Eric passed away Tuesday morning, March 12. While we definitely mourn the loss of a great person and gentle soul, we are planning to come together as one community to celebrate Eric’s life, along with his family.
Please join La Luna Dance Studio, Estilo Dance Studio, Art In Motion Dance Academy, Atrium Dance Studio and so many others as we all come together to celebrate the life of Eric Ebling and raise money for a cause in his honor. A slideshow and video of Eric will be presented; along with words spoken by close friends. There will be performances by Art In Motion, Calle Luna and Jose & Loretta; with a special collaboration of dancers from multiple teams and studios performing together!
A donation of $15 per person will be collected at the door. All monies will be presented to the family of Eric Ebling to be donated to the Memorial Fund.
The Memorial Fund set up in Eric’s name is with the American Heart Association. AHA is donating literature for handouts; a prize to a raffle winner and possibly able to send a representative to speak at the event.
There will also be raffles with prizes including free classes and dance lessons from area studios, passes to Salsafest, CD compilations, gift cards, as well as free party passes to socials and clubs. So please come prepared to take part in winning some really great prizes.
DJ’s for the evening will include, DJ Sazam Berrios, DJ George Dennis, DJ Jose Maldonado and DJ Yamil “La Clave” Collazo. Social dancing will go until 2:30AM.
Spread the word and bring a friend. Car pools are gathering to make sure everyone who wants to attend can make it to the event. Eric’s family will be there to celebrate his life with us. Let’s all come together for one big celebration of the life of someone who meant so much to so many of us.
See you Friday!
