Help rebuild our RMAD dance studio

Our dance studio and second home for many of our children has suffered from a devastating fire this afternoon. Even though lots of items were evacuated we have lost a great deal more, the trophy’s our children worked so hard for at competitions, equipment for our kids to learn with, photos, dance apparel, just to name a few. Insurance will cover the replacement of many things but it will not fund the rebuild of a new space.  All the walls that went up and the materials to do this work and all the projects in our old studio were all out of pocket expenses.  Because the condition of the building was not up to snuff, walls, flooring, plumbing and electrical had to be up to code which meant months of building and replacing (again, this was all out of pocket)  Moving forward, we now need to find a new home and there are specific needs & requirements for this to happen that we will need to fund again.  I know we have a great community and always pull together in times like this, and in time we will hopefully be able to rebuild our studio. If you are able to help out in anyway it will be greatly appreciated. On behalf of the studio our RMAD family we thank you in advance.
