Drum Circle to Benefit Childhood Education Center
The College of the Canyons Foundation is hosting a Circle of Friends Drum Circle on March 8 to raise funds for the college's Center for Early Childhood Education.
"This event is designed for the adventurous and fun at heart," said Michele Edmonson, assistant director of development at the COC Foundation. "The event is a huge jam session, an entertaining, entry-level learning experience that is accessible for anyone who wants to participate."
Held in the college's new high-tech building, Hasley Hall, the event will begin at 5 p.m. with a wine reception and an appetizer buffet by RSVP Catering, followed by a tour of the building. The drum circle will begin at 6 p.m.
Facilitated by Remo Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of drumheads, drum circles provide a "memorable and therapeutic" experience, said Edmonson.
Admission is $35 per person.
All proceeds benefit the Early Childhood Education Center and help to support the high quality and safety of the physical environment, such as learning materials and equipment for the classrooms and children's yards.
