You know the Koinonea chill-out vibe?
We’re putting it front and center for the evening.

Come relax, unwind and dance with us all night long as we create a lounge of love to soothe your senses.

Propel your body through a forest of lush, thick beats.
Drink chai and meet somebody wonderful.
Be a part of this beautiful community.

g r o u n d t e m p o will take place in the Sanctuary for the Arts, a beautiful former church with tall wooden ceilings and plenty of room to dance.

Dress for comfort in our intimate ultra-lounge:
a well-upholstered mezzanine to chat, relax and recharge.
Water, snacks and other surprises will nourish you throughout the night, and your eyes will be well fed with top-shelf lighting and visual decor.

Want tickets? Here’s how to get them: http://www.koinonea.org

But please, do not forward this announcement to any other mailing lists.
This event will sell out quickly, and we prefer to keep tickets among you, our friends.

You can also buy them in person from us, your friends.
We’d love to see you there.
