Director of Wagana Aboriginal Dancers Jo Clancy reports that their 1920s fundraising night last Saturday “was our most successful fundraiser yet. We raised $2,300 towards the trip and are thrilled. We were also successful a few weeks ago with a $6,000 grant from the Layne Beachley Foundation.
“We are very close to our goal now and are booking our flights this Friday.”
The Wagana Aboriginal Dancers perform contemporary & traditional Aboriginal dances inspired by the Blue Mountains & Central NSW West country.
