Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser

On January 20, Mandrágora Tango and the Tango Society of Minnesota will host a fundraiser for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity
on January 20th at the Eagles Aerie in South Minneapolis (2507 E. 25th. St.). There will be a lesson at 8, followed by dancing to live and DJ'd music from 9 to 12:30. We'll have tango demos, a silent auction and other surprises. The Eagle's Aerie will be running a cash bar. $20 suggested donation, with 100% going to Habitat for Humanity. No one turned away for lack of funds. Please come out and help the Tango community raise some funds for a worthy cause.

Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Habitat has built more than 200,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1,000,000 people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter. A new Habitat house is completed somewhere in the world every 24 minutes. Habitat for Humanity has one of the lowest operating ratios of any charity out there, meaning that more of each dollar donated goes to building houses rather than to overhead expenses.

The members of Mandrágora all believe that Habitat is one of the most worthy charities out there. Many of us have donated our time and money to them. The Eagles Aerie has donated the room for the night and Mandrágora and the Tango Society of Minnesota are donating all the entertainment. 100% of your donation/cover charge will go to Habitat. If you make out a check, Habitat will send you a tax-deductible receipt.

Please come out and dance, listen, drink, or whatever you like to do in South Minneapolis on a cold Saturday night. We can guarantee that this milonga will be more fun than whatever's on TV that night (even if you have cable.)
