Two dancers initiated a fundraiser to express their appreciation to Carole Cave’s Sooke Dance Studio. The studio burned down in big fire in July of this year.

Dancers Camille Johns and Maddy McHugh sent out a message to their supporters.

“We believe that as dancers, it is also our responsibility to show our support for our amazing dance studio that has given us so much over the past years,” they write in an email that was distributed to their supporters. “Like many of you, we have danced here for many years and it has helped to shape the people we are today. With that being said, an organized bake sale is the least we can do to give our thanks.”

Their bake sale was arranged for December 14 and 15, and in total the enterprising youth raised over $800.
