This is a pay-what-you-can event, open to all members of our community. If you can support PPR by buying a $15 or $20 ticket in advance, or paying $20 at the door, we urge you to do that. And if dinner is in your budget, we urge you to reserve a table with Lula Lounge, 416-588-0307, as a vote of thanks to Lula for supporting this event. Lula will be giving 10% of all proceeds from food and drink to PPR, and dinner reservations guarantee you seating for the event.
So come as you are, pay what you can, have dinner if you like, and dance, dance, dance to celebrate over 30 years of community literacy in Parkdale.
