Those who fancy 'dancing in the moonlight' with their beloved this Valentine's Day need look no further.
Keeping things eclectic, Bar So is the home for 'Dance For Ghana', a night thrown to raise money for Mikee Jay to go to Ghana to help refurbish a school, enabling the kids to have a safe environment in which to receive their education. Mikee himself explains:
"In April i'm off to Ghana, to help in an awesome project which is refurbishing a rural school. This will help provide a safe place for the children to receive much needed education. what i am asking is that you help me out, and make a donation to this worthy cause. I am so privileged in that i can go and make a real difference to these kids' lives. I would love it if you could help me on my way! With your kindness, I can send a beautiful gift of time, work and love to people who without projects like these, would have nothing”
