Fundraiser for Glenn Crytzer Details
Follow Up Note:
A BIG Thanks is in order! Our May 18th Swing Stomp Dance Party and benefit for Glenn Crytzer was a BIG Success! Not only did we raise close to $800 for Glenn, but because we exceeded our attendance minimums, Swing Remix added an additional $140 on top of that for Glenn. So THANK YOU all for your generous donations and your attendance!
We also wish to thanks all our partners who generously provided gifts for our Raffle:

The Lovely Ladies of Lindy (Evita Arce's solo jazz class), and The Sugarfoot Follies ladies in red fringe 1920’s garb were charming and helped to make the evening extra special. Plus Dance workshops by Nathan Bugh were also a great Treat.

You've likely heard about band leader Glenn Crytzer's recent and unfortunate car accident. Although injured, to our joy, Glenn will indeed play our dance party on SAT May 18th. While he will likely have a replacement guitarist while his body physically recuperates, he plans to sing (as his voice was unscathed). This Fundraiser Raffle and Auction will be held during our dance party with all proceeds going directly to Glenn Crytzer. Here's where you can get involved. Either purchase Raffle tickets that night, with the chance to win GREAT prizes, or if you have an item you wish to donate (to be used for our Raffle and/or Auction) please contact us at email@example.com
Although our Deadline has passed to donate a PRIZE Gift, you can still contact us by phone/email and if it's important enough, we'll get it included!
Our Goal is to raise $2,500 for him which although is small in comparison to what his medical expenses will be, we hope to set a standard of compassion and action. We feel it's important to give something back when we can, especially to those in our circle who are in need and who have given us so much joy and inspiration.
Thanks kindly for your generosity,
The Team at Swing Remix
