Belly Dancing Benefit

Now, here's a creative way to raise money for a good cause. The "Hips and Hearts" competition is benefiting access and other local charities --- through belly dancing. 
Twelve dancers took part in the event at the Wild River Restaurant in Medford.

Participants, Devi Safir and Taroob, tell us why they got involved: "It feels good to use the art that we love so much to help benefit a charity. So it feels wonderful to give back to the community."

Everyone in attendance could put in a dollar bill for either their favorite dancer, or favorite charity. Every vote was a dollar each.
