Update: ’80s Immersion Dance Party and Fundraiser Planted 20,000+ Trees

Dance and Leap (Year) for Trees on February 29th in Washington, DC!  Join us at the lovely St. Yves Club in downtown Washington, DC for an evening of fun ’80s dance tunes, music videos, period films, food, and good celebrations.  Master DJ Neal Keller will be spinning the tunes and filling four screens with images and videos from the era.

Proceeds from this event will support the global-scale reforestation efforts of ForestPlanet, and help us plant 50,000+ trees where they are needed most.  ForestPlanet is a 501(c)3 organization that supports large scale, low cost-per-tree reforestation efforts all over the world. We help plant trees in regions where they have the greatest positive impact on the soil, the environment, local habitat, and communities in peril.

St. Yves Club
