Everyone who collaborated on the Spring 2012 Milonga,

On behalf of the Peruvian Education Initiative (PEI) and the Tango Club, we would like to thank everyone who helped make this a very successful weekend for Tango at Amherst College and the Pioneer Valley. This marked the second collaboration between PEI and the Tango club this year.

The Milonga was beautiful, and the entire weekend was- in our minds- a great success!There was a nice turnout and we raised over $600 in donations for PEI. The money we raised is enough to pay for a month and a half’s tuition for all three of our sponsored students in Peru.  So, really PEI and the Tango club cannot thank you enough for helping us in our mission to combat the cycle of poverty in Peru.

We had a great time planning and organizing the Milonga! We hope each of the attendees enjoyed it as much as we did!

Thanks again for all your support,
Laura Zaccagnino '12 and Alex Jaramillo '12
