Thank you to all our friends and supporters who have contributed to and shared our 4th of July Parade Kickstarter so far! There are only 5 days to go, and a lot of work left to do to reach our goal. If we do not raise $2,300 we don’t receive any of the contributions. You can contribute any amount, and receive some pretty cool EEDS swag, too! Please also share our Kickstarter link on social media if you can: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/983784316/2015-evanston-escola-de-samba-4th-of-july-parade
Your donations go toward parade materials, costumes for the dancers and percussionists, payment for the teachers, as well as scholarships for members who can’t afford full-priced summer-session classes. You can also be a part of EEDS by joining us for percussion classes at 4048 West Armitage, Chicago, IL every Wednesday night from 7-8:30. All are welcome to join these drop-in classes, and you can then play in the parade! Hope to see you there, and thanks again for your support!
