Dance benefit supports Alzheimer's foundation

Exercise the mind and body at the "Dance to Remember," on Wednesday, Aug. 13, beginning at 6 p.m. at Easton's Beach Rotunda in Newport.

Several well known local dance instructors will teach and lead various forms of dance, including standards such as tango and rumba to more modern styles like Latin funk and zumba.

Singles, couples, friends and guests of all ages are all welcome in this no pressure environment. The dance instructors include Eddie Anella, Martina Aldrich, Rachel Balaban, Sara Barker, Katherine Carbone, Jackie Henderson, Paul and Roxanne Lacroix, and Carol Perry.

The suggested $25 donation includes an hour of carousel rides from 6 to 7 p.m., hors d'oeuvres, and dance instruction until 11 p.m. A cash bar will be available. Parking is free. All proceeds will benefit the Rhode Island Alzheimer Foundation.

For more information or to make a donation, call Ginger Sahady at 465-6577. Tickets may also be purchased at Baker's Pharmacy.
