EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – They were dancing with a purpose in Easthampton Friday night for a Latin Dance Bash at Eastworks on Pleasant Street.

Between 30 and 60 couples were Salsa Dancing at the “Dance for a Cause” fundraiser supporting the AIDS Foundation of western Massachusetts.

The Foundations leader said AIDS is still an epidemic in the western part of the state. “Springfield has a number of people with HIV and AIDS that’s second only to Boston and the number of people who are newly infected is also second only to Boston,” said Jessica Crevier, the Executive Director of the AIDS Foundation of WMass.

All proceeds from Friday night’s “Dance For a Cause” go the AIDS Foundation of western Massachusetts.
