#GivingTuesday Event!

Please join DMF Youth on Tuesday, November 29th for our #GivingTuesday event to kick start our end-of-year fundraising! The evening will start with an awesome dance-cardio class taught by founder, Lindi Duesenberg, followed by cocktails, snacks and networking with some amazing, powerhouse women! No dance skills required!

You’ll hear the stories of some of DMF Youth’s most inspiring kids, learn what challenges we face and how you can be a part of our upcoming growth. We are seeking to expand our Board of Directors and encourage you to bring a friend to learn more about us and how we empower youth through dance, fitness and life skill development! We promise you’ll leave feeling inspired and ready to take on the holiday season.

We are also using this evening to stock our “supply pantry” for our 2017 programming. So along with your amazing self, we would love you to bring a small item from our wish list!
