* A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to THRIVE Community Youth Network(CYN) St. John’s. THRIVE is an umbrella organization that works with the community to:

address gaps in services;
build community partnerships;
increase awareness of existing programs and services;
and to conduct outreach to our most marginalized youth.

The THRIVE Drive is a fall donation program to help gear people up for the cold winter months…many marginalized young people need hats, gloves, blankets, winter boots, personal care items, and so on to help them survive the winter on the streets. If you would like to know more about THRIVE, and to donate any items, gift cards, or more cash please check out their website:

We’ll also collect extra donations at the salsa event!!!
