"Diane's Giving Tree"
For Dancers Only is collecting gift card donations on our annual
“Giving Tree”. This year the studio is dedicating the tree to Diane Galka,
a mom of one of our young dancers. Diane, 39, sadly passed away on
October 16, 2014, after a long and courageous fight with Lung cancer. Diane
was a Special Education Teacher for the Clifton Board of Education for the
past 15 years. As many know, working with Autistic children takes a special
kind of person and for sure, Diane had that gift. Giving to those in need,
especially those whose lives have been touched by cancer, is a wonderful
tribute to Diane and her family.
“The Giving Tree” sponsored by the Family Reach Foundation is a
nonprofit organization that provides heartfelt support to families fighting cancer.
The studio is asking for donations of gift cards for any dollar amount from any
store or establishment. Gift cards will be labeled with the donor’s name and
attached to an ornament, which will be placed on “Diane’s Giving Tree”. The
cards in turn will be distributed by the Family Reach Foundation to families
with a child or parent being treated for cancer in one of the hospitals in the
New Jersey-New York metropolitan area.
