Baby….It Was Cold Outside!

Our dance on Saturday January 7th lived up to its name – it really was COLD outside, but inside, it was nice and warm as we danced the night away at the Knights of Columbus in Oakville.

The dance was in support of Food For Life which provides fresh food to over 40,000 people each month in the Halton Region.  Thank you to everyone who attended and helped raise funds for this great charity.

Another big thank you to our sponsors!!
