Salsa for Change

Jan 6, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Salsa for Change is about a lot more than just dancing. This monthly event, which was held last month at Vancouver's Crush Champagne Lounge, is out to raise money for "Colombian groups and community
organizations working for youth, indigenous sovereignty,
anti-militarism and human rights."  Organized by the youth of ENLACES Canada-Colombia, the free Salsa lessons are a fun bonus.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
