September 30th fund update

15 Nov

Since the last update, the Portland Tango Community Fund has continued to provide assistance for those wishing to further their study of Argentine Tango. An additional $1,260 has been paid on behalf of 12 individuals to four different Portland instructors and organizers.  Many thanks to all who have contributed over the year, as this fund would not exist without their generosity.  As far as I know, it is unique in the world of Argentine tango.  Congratulations Portland!  Looking forward, Portland is fortunate in having the famous Argentine instructors Oscar Mandagaran and Georgina Vargas agree to make Portland their temporary residence for the entire month of November.  Numerous group lessons and workshops have already been scheduled and are open to all members of the Portland tango community.  Although they don’t have a local sponsor, which is typically required for tango fund assistance, I have decided to make their group lessons and workshops available for support.  I view their temporary residence here as making them Portland instructors for the month of November.  This is a great opportunity for the Portland tango community and well deserving of support.
