Myanmar fundraiser rocks Victoria church hall

Rukus headlining dance to raise funds for children's charity

On Nov. 17, OrphanAsia Society hosts a dance fundraiser for its upcoming humanitarian trip to Myanmar in January.

They are selling tickets to the event, looking for items for its live auction and inviting those interested to join them on their upcoming trip.
