NC’s International Community Links is presenting an event that promises to be great fun for a great cause.
Zumba Extravaganza will be held Friday, July 27, from 5-6 p.m. at the Welland Campus Athletic Centre.
All proceeds form the event will support Gillian’s Place, a women’s shelter in St. Catharines.
Lina Lianga who is organizing the event with International Community Links, a group of International students dedicated to volunteering during their stay in Canada. While the group members typically volunteer their time at other Niagara-area events, they were interested in hosting their first fundraiser and chose Gillian’s Place.
“The Zumba event is for everyone. It’s for staff, students, anyone in the community,” she said. “It’s for people who love to dance and exercise, but it is also for those people who just want to have fun and help others in need. No experience necessary.”
Tickets are $5 and may be purchased from members of International Community Links in the International Department (S100) or at the door.
