10 months and 8 days left
until the event.
To the supporters and sponsors of
Dance for the Rescues:

We want to thank you for your support in the previous five years and years ahead.  This year though in 2015, we will not be having the live event on the Custom House Plaza in Monterey.   We will return next year though on the same second Sunday of October, Animal Rescue Day in Monterey County. You can still reserve a place on your advanced calendars for October 9, 2016.
It is our hope in the meanwhile to reinvigorate the Dance for the Rescues webpage and Facebook presence and increase our outreach to the many individuals, vendors and sponsors who have supported this worthy cause. We will also be looking for a larger management team, additional event coordinators and individuals that can assist us with social media in the months and days ahead of the next event in 2016.
If you have suggestions for how to improve on the event or wish to make a contribution of your time in assuring that the next event is the best ever, please contact Polaris and Taven Kinison Brown at 831-277-4049 and 238-6940.

Thank you for your time and support.

Dance for the Rescues: A Zumba® Event for the Animals is a benefit for non-profit animal rescue organizations. Our primary beneficiaries are Animal Friends Rescue Project (AFRP) and Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR). This event will also feature and support other animal rescue groups committed to making a difference to animals in need.

The 6th Annual Dance for the Rescues event will be held at the Custom House Plaza – Monterey State Historic Park, in Monterey, CA on Sunday October 11, 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This event will once again showcase Zumba®, a high energy Latin infused dance combining salsa, meringue, cumbia, reggaeton and other dance styles. We will feature DJ Willi spinning the best in world/dance music and Host Kim Fujii. As we get closer you can check out our Guest Instructors! Page!

Rescue and support groups such as AFRP, POMDR, Greyhounds for Life, Operation Freedom Paws, Annie's Blankets, Birchbark Foundation and Pet Friends Rescue will be available to share information about their organizations and to introduce you to some of their adoptable animals. There will be food, arts & crafts, pet related products and fitness/health vendors.
