Fundraising dance for natural disaster victims features Func Pro Tunc Band

Nov. 1, 2005

“Dancin’ for Dollars,” a wild night of boogying, will raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina and the Pakistani earthquake. The event will be from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 13 at Saint Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE.

A suggested donation of $10 to $25 can be paid at the door; those who can’t afford the price are invited to pay what they can. Sponsors for the event are Tikun Olam (the Social Action Committee) of Temple Beth Hatfiloh, the Saint Martin’s University Psychology Club and Pacific Stage.

Dance music will be courtesy of Func Pro Tunc. Formed in 1998, the 14 members of Func Pro Tunc hail from all corners of the state; all are hardworking attorneys by day. On their second shift, they’re a hard-driving, energetic funk band noted for great tunes.

The band has rocked conferences, clubs, legal-aid fundraisers and more with music from Aretha Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, and other favorites. Their mission, they say, is to “get down, get on up, and get on the good foot! Their method: rock and soul, rhythm and blues. Their motto: ‘Make it funky’."

To add to the evening’s fun and funds, sponsors invite those attending to bring items such as knitted hats or scarves, handmade pottery, jewelry or other items to donate for raffles. The raffles will take place throughout the evening.
