Two 'flash mobs' raise funds for local charity

Two "flash mobs" are taking place in Abbotsford in December as fundraisers for Abbotsford Community Services' seniors' branch.

The branch offers programs such as Meals on Wheels, Lunch with the Bunch, outings and more.

The fundraisers are being co-ordinated by the Project G Flash Mob group, which is holding rehearsals on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. and Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. at Blue Jay Elementary (30995 Southern Drive).

Anyone is welcome to attend for a $5 donation.

The flash mobs will then perform on Friday, Dec. 14 at 6:30 p.m. and Thursday, Dec. 20 at 6 p.m. The locations will be announced at the rehearsals.

All choreography and videos will also be posted on the website grooveforce.ca after the second rehearsal. The user name and password will be emailed after the routine is taught.

Project G (for "give") raises funds for local charities by having participants pay $5 to take part in a flash mob. Past recipients have been Communitas Supportive Care, the Abbotsford Food Bank, and Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley.
