Many of you know I lost my dad to Pancreatic Cancer two years ago. To honor his struggle and raise funds to find ways to prevent and cure this fatal cancer, join me for a Zumba class and silent auction to benefit The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, PanCAN. 
When: Saturday, June 28, 2014
What: Zumba Fitness Class, Silent Auction, and Barbecue
Where: The Confluence, 654 Granger Road, Berlin, VT
Your Contribution: $20 or get in free by raising a minimum of $50 in sponsorship*

*You can raise money in cash, check (made out to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network) or through firstgiving.org (super easy and you can post in e-mails and via social media)

Event Timing:
9:30-10:15am: registration, silent auction bidding, Zumba “store” shopping
10:15am-11:45am: 75-minute Zumba class, more bidding, door prize awards
12:00pm: Barbecue

Each participant will have the opportunity to take home one of a dozen fantastic door prizes. We’ve had many of local businesses donate to an incredible silent auction you won’t want to miss! Zumba-related clothing and accessories will be available for purchase. 100% of the profits from the Zumba “store” and our silent auction will go to PanCAN.
