Before I became a crafty mom I was a dancer. I loved it, every second of it. From the countless hours of rehearsal as a kid in a small studio to performing professionally on grande stages across the globe. All of this was possible because of my talented, loving,wonderful dance teacher, Tom Waters. This friday night some of my Poppy Chic goodies will be a part of the silent auction at the Gala for Tom
An evening to honor and celebrate one of Frederick’s most beloved dance educators.The evening will include a silent auction and screening of the documentary “A Gift of Love: The Legacy of Thomas F. Waters.” There will also be several special performances by family and friends. Light hor d’oeuvres will be served from La Paz and a cash bar will be available.
There will be a silent auction with lots of great items from around Frederick. Proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction will go towards a memorial fund in Tom’s name to aid dancers in our community and to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association to help find a cure for the disease that has claimed Tom far too soon.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through the Weinberg Center Box Office by calling 301-600-2828.
If you care to make an individual donation to the Thomas F. Waters Memorial Fund, they can be mailed to the Community Foundation of Frederick County at 312 E. Church St. Frederick, MD 21701
Thanks for everything Tom :)
