Thank you, Jonesboro, for your continued overwhelming support of our fundraiser!!! Proceeds support programming and operations of The Center and The Closet as we provide connections for service, enrichment, and support activities for all women in our community. The participants in Wanna Dance? 2014 are working extremely hard to provide fantastic entertainment as well as raise funds for The Center.
We are blessed to have amazing volunteer coaches to work with our couples this year. You will see the results of the generous gift of their time - developing routines, teaching the steps, practicing, adjusting, and encouraging!

A Way You Can Assist Haiti
The Caribbean artwork that is currently on exhibit at The Center is available for purchase. The total proceeds of your purchase of these works will assist those whose lives were devastated by the earthquake in January 2010. An amazing collection of works by five Caribbean artists from Galeria de Arte Ajoupa in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, is included in this exhibit and for sale. You may have just the right place in your home or office for one or more of these one-of-a-kind pieces.
