Swing Katz Fundraiser 
Get our kids to Munich Rock That Swing Festival  Fundraiser has been overwhelmingly
supported.  We would love to thank everyone who has donated and supported this fundraiser.  Your generosity is more than appreciated.  We would also like to thank everyone who has contacted us and donated gifts, cash, bought tickets for our Christmas Raffle and donated through GoFundMe.  We are still receiving more and more fundraising ideas from our wonderful students and friends and I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The money will be divided amongst the kids for their airfares. The parents have a big job in raising balance of funds for the 5 day workshops, accommodation, food and refreshments.
We are extremely happy to announce a sum of $950 was raised through the Christmas Raffle. Thank you so much.
