This is our fourth and final chance to honor our dear friend Audrey Swan, and we need your help.
The past three years we have helped hold a memorial contest dance at the Pine Point Powwow in her name and have given away prize money to those who have come out to honor her. It has been an honor and a privilege for us to partner with the community this way, and we are so grateful. This year will be a couples two-step special.
This year will be a couples two-step special. You can see an example at another powwow here:
In the past, we have raised as much as $1,000 to be split between the dancers and the drum that will sing the special songs required for the honoring ceremony. This year, we are hoping to collect at least $500 and three nice blankets to give away.
Please consider a contribution to the continued healing of the Swan family and all of Audrey’s friends by making a monetary donation. You can donate directly to HFtFN via check, Facebook Fundraiser (where you also can get updates on our progress) or PayPal through Friday, Aug. 11, 2017.
