Energy rising for Zumbathon

Following the colossal success of the first Zumbathon, another is scheduled for Oct. 25.

Zumba instructors are unleashing another dance party in support of Habitat for Humanity.

Following the colossal success of the first Zumbathon, another is scheduled for Oct. 25.

“The energy is going to be through the roof,” said Zumba instructor Sareena Sharma Nickoli.

“Join us for the two-hour dance party starting at 7 p.m. at the Veron Recreation Complex and dance to the different styles and beats of merengue, salsa, reggaeton, Bollywood, mambo and more.”

There will be door prizes and the first 40 tickets purchased will receive a free T-shirt at the door. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at City Furniture, Diana’s Monogramming, Sutton Lakefront Realty or from any of the Zumba instructors.

This event features special participation by the Predator Ridge homeowners, City Furniture management and staff and Silver Star. Who do you want to see doing the shimmy for such a great cause?

“We’re overdue to set Habitat for Humanity into perpetual motion in Vernon.  It’s a hand up not a hand out,” said Nickoli about her involvement with Habitat’s ‘Lend a hand to buy the land’ campaign.
