Want to learn how to salsa dance? Want to show off your salsa dancing skills? Want to help out an organization that provides 24/7 support for victims of domestic violence in Northwest Arkansas?
You can accomplish all of the above by stopping by Powerhouse Seafood tonight for the first annual Salsa Dance, benefiting Peace at Home Family Shelter.
Salsa lessons take place between 8-10 p.m., and afterwards, you can show off your newly acquired salsa skills on the dance floor to the sounds of the Neta Band. Tickets are $15, and all of the proceeds raised benefit the shelter.
In addition to helping to raise funds for the shelter, the event is also intended to raise awareness for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
If you aren’t familiar, the Peace at Home Family Shelter was established in 1977 to provide safe haven to victims of domestic violence, and with a mission to end family violence in Northwest Arkansas. The center provides a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week crisis line for support to victims in the area. The shelter also helps survivors of domestic violence escape abusive situations by providing assistance with independent housing, child care, job opportunities, and more.
Plus, they operate a thrift store that provides free clothing, furniture, and household items to victims.
