John'e Cabaret Reaches $25,000 Goal

Note from Johne:

To all Dancers, Bands and Donators....

We will have a special event this Saturday June 25th at about 8:15pm at Greenfield Village RV Resort to give $4,000 ($2,000 each) to Sunshine Acres Children's Home and the Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL - no-kill shelter).  Rich Howard, along with Brad and John, will play for us.  A fantastic trio.

This totals $25,000.00!!!  -  that all the dancers have donated.  WOW!!

One of our dance couples, Eugene & Iona (been married for 58 years), will bake and donate a carrot cake for this special event.  Iona is retiring from the baking business and thought this would be a wonderful donation (and by the way... is looking to pass her baking business on to someone else, a great opportunity for anyone looking to get into baking).

Carol Whitworth from Sunshine Acres and  Monika Sperke from AAWL will attend to receive the donations.  We have so many dancers, band members, and others that have donated to the charities....from $1 to $1,000.  Thank you soooooo much!

Our next goal is $30,000.  And we are already on our way to reach that goal.


Reign-N-Country will be performing this Friday night at JohnE's Cabaret (Greenfield Village Resort) from 7:00pm to 9:45pm. This is a great band, be there for a great evening of dancing and music.

On Saturday they will be at the VFW in Apache Junction from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. It is located on Phelps Drive, behind Pizza Hut.

Dancing Last Saturday

Went to JohnE's (Greenfield Village) this past Saturday. It has been a while since we have been to a "Social" dance. The Rich Howard Orchestra was playing and they did their usual great job. 

But boy, is my Tango rusty...

and my Polka was none existent...
