Combine your love of music and dance to help developing nations all over the world on Sunday November 2nd at the “Dance for the World” event. The “Dance” in conjunction with CUSO and VSO form Canada’s Volunteer Partnership Fund. They use the funds raised to send volunteers all over the world to aid in international development, support local projects such as human rights campaigns, environmental sustainability and fight against poverty.
“We are going to have an awesome time guys and it’s all for charity,” said Melissa De Oliveira, 20, who will be attending the event on Sunday night and knows Jon Vegas one of the DJ’s.
Montréal DJ’s like Vegas, Shiver & Niko, DJ nV and Jester (who performs at Redlite after hours club) will perform at the House night club and have all agreed to spin tracks free of charge, all night long, to help raise money for the charity.
DJ Shiver & Niko and DJ nV will battle between 11:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. for prizes sponsored by D-Lo Recording Studios and tickets can be purchased in advance for ten dollars a piece by logging onto www.dancefortheworld.ca or at the door on the night of November 2nd.
“If we sell over 300 tickets in advance we can have the second floor of the club opened up for us, which will give us a lot more room and..ya know…it isn’t that many considering it’s for a good cause,” said Jon Vegas, who also helped to organize the event.
Dance for the World will hold events in seven major cities in Canada, including Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Halifax during October and November to raise money for the volunteers abroad. Anyone who wants more information on how to get involved with the charity can log onto www.cuso.org.
