Second Annual Zumbathon Benefitting West Hawaii Child & Family Service

More than a dozen Zumba instructors from around the island are joining in support of the West Hawaii Child & Family Service (WHC&FS) to help promote Domestic Violence Awareness, particularly towards children. “Shine the Light” Zumbathon, presented for the second year in a row by Dance 4 Action (local Zumba instructors Ronnie Claveran, Alex Mitchell, Renee Morinaka, and Rod Watai), will be held at the Kona Imin Center (76-5876 Hawaii 180, Old Government Road, Holualoa). It’s 6-9pm on Saturday, September 30th and tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door with net proceeds going to WHC&FS.“We want to let those who feel that they’re alone know that we stand beside them,” the Dance 4 Action ladies said. “Last year we raised more than $3,500 and over 130 people got a great dance workout while supporting our friends and family who need a safe and comfortable shelter when fleeing domestic violence. We hope to double those numbers this year!”

DJ EzE (Eric Ching) will keep the dance fitness party rocking with his spectacular sounds and lights. Guests should wear comfortable fitness clothing, and bring water and a towel. Each ticket includes an entry for prize giveaways.
Domestic Abuse Shelters are temporary shelters offering women and children up to 90 days of a safe haven when fleeing from domestic violence. The shelter offers basic needs (food, clothing etc.), counseling support and services for children. During this temporary stay, they learn dynamics of domestic violence and how to develop a safety plan.
