Oh we did it! AbunDANCE (the ladies dance party + fundraiser for Thrive DC ) was AMAZING. We raised almost $2000!! 

And we learned a lot, as the night went off with quite a few hitches...

For example, we showed up at the church that was hosting us to set up and found our party room filled with indigenous people protestors (and all of their sleeping bags/air mattresses) who had come for the climate march. We didn't know what to do and I just concentrated on not freaking out. 

Finally, after a bit of awkward waiting time and a few tarot cards, we were assigned a new space. From there our feminine power leapt into action. In about an hour, we transformed that dark church basement into a space befit for queens. 

So many wonderful ladies came out to dance and eat and be merry. New friendships were sparked at the dance floor and while taking photos and eating the food (omg the food!). 

Overall it was imperfectly perfect, the stuff from which good stories are made. Setting up this event was a lot of work for a lot of people. It's hard to quantify the exact value of it all but in my heart I feel it was worth it, so very worth it.
