Living Dream Arts


Circus Fundraiser Extravaganza
Thursday, Feb 25th
@ Supperclub SF
657 Harrison Street, San Francisco

Dear Friends,
As you may have heard, the traveling charitable circus troupe, Dreamtime Circus, has joined with the Bay Area based youth arts organization, VAGABOOM!, to create a new nonprofit organization called Living Dream Arts.  The original names won't disappear, however.  You'll still hear about "Dreamtime international tours" and "VAGABOOM! after-school programs", but these are now programs operating under a single organization with a single mission: Living Dream Arts, bringing interactive art programs and performances to communities in the Bay Area and around the world!

~ Circus Fundraiser Extravaganza ~
We're kicking off this living dream, and sending off the Dreamtime Peruvian Tour, at a spectacular circus cabaret and dinner event at the Supperclub in San Francisco on Thursday, February 25th.  Details are below and reservations (which are strongly encouraged due to limited availability) can be made at:

www.LivingDreamArts .org/events/
Can't make the event, but want to support Living Dream Arts?

You can make a tax-deductible donation at www.LivingDreamArts .org.

See you at the show....
