Since assuming management of the Tango Fund in the fall of last year, I am pleased to report that a total of $640 in instruction support has been paid on behalf of nine different Portland area students of Argentine Tango. This was in support of group classes and workshops sponsored by four different members of the Portland tango community. Over the course of the last few months the Fund received individual donations totaling $405 from six members of the Portland community. The highlight, however, was the Tango Bucket Challenge benefit milonga on January 31st which raised a total of $640 for the Fund. Way to go Portland! As of March 31st the Fund was on solid financial ground and can continue to offer support for serious students of Argentine Tango.
