DRUMS from HEAVEN Oct 29 7 to midnite

A former member
Post #: 40

Please allow me to introduce you to Dorothy Sikora, whose life we want to save.

As many of you know October is breast cancer awareness month.
Unfortunately people who end up with this disease become aware for the rest of their lives. Dorothy is one of these people.
Please come help support Dorothy on Oct 29. This DRUMS from HEAVEN
has become one of the most personal fundraising events I will have done.
Your support in money donated, your community drumming, dancing and healing chants will definitely help Dorothy in her quest to beat this disease and go on living for years to come. If you can't come and want to donate, please contact me.

I have got to say that having attended Tommy Purple Haze's events in the past, I can guarantee you would have a wonderful time and meet a lot of fine people. Add to that the fact that Dorothy Sikora is a dynamite Drum Circle Facilitator herself, a lovely person, wife and mother who has been battling cancer for some time, you would be doing another drummer what my people call a "mitzvoh". I urge you to attend if at all possible. Car pools are not impossible. I would be happy to facilitate putting some together if those who have cars and will go and those who don't who would like to go would contact me.
