Over 200 people put on their dancing shoes and attended the “Dance for Awareness” on Saturday night, March 2nd. This 1st annual event was held at the American Legion Hall in Westbrook with the purpose of raising funds to benefit Brain Aneurysm Awareness.
Folks enjoyed the music presented by DJ & Singer, Gloria Jean Silke – 3 time Maine Female Vocalist of the year and Maine Country Music Hall of Fame nominee. A silent auction, gift item auction, and 50/50 raffle added to the excitement of an evening of dancing and socializing. Survivors and families having suffered losses to Brain Aneurysms were honored and remembered. Also observed were the March birthdays of two young ladies lost to ruptured Brain Aneurysms – Kimberly Tudor and Karolina Kurka.
Over $4,000 was raised by the event to benefit Brain Aneurysm Awareness and the committee wishes to extend our heartfelt thank-you to all that donated items for the auctions and all those that attended.
