To all my friends, family and supporters,
We are just 3 weeks away from the 13th anniversary & the start of our 14’th year of Drums from Heaven. Halloween drum & dance ball is on Friday~October 26th, 2018. (Note 1/2 hour earlier) 6:30 to 11:30 PM.
Hoping for another special evening. Once again I ask you to come support this effort with your time, talent, & treasure.
As many of you know the Saddle Brook VFW has made many donations to my selected charitable causes over the years. They have fallen on some hard times and need some building renovations. It’s time to give back. Time to help the Vets. https://saddlebrooknj.us/organizations/vfw/
Also sharing this benefit will be Lennon’s House. They are a non-profit entity whose goal is to provide care, activities and eventually housing for the special needs community. https://www.facebook.com/LennonsHouse/
For the newbies, we start the evening with a 1 hour welcoming interactive drum circle at 6:30 PM.
As the night progresses there will be alternate performances and drumming and dancing.
From my first DFH 13 years ago and still going, The Life Movement Dancers are back.
We also welcome the Zydeco Revelators, who will get you up dancing with their cajun music.
Costumes are optional with prizes for the best 3 adults and kids. Please enter our costume parade to win a prize. We have drums and percussion instruments to raffle, Plus looking for other prizes to raffle. Please contact me if you can donate something.
If you have an instrument that is in great condition and you would like to donate it to help us raise more money please contact me.
We have a grand prize 12″ LP Conga signed by multiple classic rockers, including members of Vanilla Fudge
Carmine Appice, Vince Martel, Mark Stein, Bill Bremy, also Rick Derringer (Johnny Winter), Mitch Ryder (Detroit Wheels) & Joey Molland (Badfinger)… This will be a collectors item for sure.
Please support this and win yourself something special!
For those of us who have experienced a drum circle we know the rewarding feeling we all get when we participate. We get energized, we get relaxed. We forget about our busy lives while we drum. Some of us meditate and focus on their inner being. Others feel the rhythms penetrate through their bodies. Some of us connect through drum and dance. The most important thing we are doing is communicating and making one another feel good. All this, and helping raise funds for the cause.
What more do I ask of you besides your attendance and support of the raffles? If you can’t attend and you wish to donate please contact me. You can also buy raffle tickets for the grand prize my mail, winner need not be present. Just got the word Inserra Supermarkets is donating over $600 in delicious food! If you would like to bring any sharing desserts that would also be helpful!
If you are available to help set up and decorate the VFW hall, we begin at 9AM on 10-26, please let me know. 2 or 3 hours of your time will be most appreciated! The more people who help, the less time we use. I also ask you to share this information in e-mails and Facebook.
I thank you all in advance for your help.
Vending: Please contact me by e-mail or FB messenger if you are interested.
On October 26th, 2018 We will celebrate 13 years of Drums from Heaven circles. Please come experience and support DRUMS from HEAVEN!
Keep your drum alive, Tommy Purple Haze
