Tonight: Dance to benefit Japan recovery


From the residents of one seismically active region to the residents of another, the Teen Committee in Portola Valley is sponsoring a "Dance for Japan" set for 7:30 to 9:45 p.m. Friday, April 8, in the community hall at 765 Portola Road.

While the dance will be free and open to kids from Portola Valley and their guests, donations are welcome and will be sent directly to a relief organization working in Japan in the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, Teen Committee Chair Sharon Driscoll said.

Go to this link for a permission slip, which each child must bring and have signed by one of their parents.

Permission slips are also available from the office at Corte Madera middle school.

Parents with questions or who wish to chaperone or underwrite the dance expenses can contact Ms. Driscoll at
