We are hosting a SPECIAL TRIBUTE to our Mama aka Annie Nguyen aka Vanniety Kills and to all of you that care so much about her!!!

As you may know, our beloved Annie (Vanniety Kills) has been seriously suffering due to a recent TBI (traumatic brain injury) in October and we are on a mission to make her recovery as focused as possible. By alleviating her medical expenses, we can allow her to exclusively focus on her healing. We hope this Fundraiser will significantly help in this mission.

Annie / Vanniety Kills will not be attending this event due to the nature of her injury. She suffered this setback while sharing her gifts and her light with her community – while giving others a space to feel safe and empowered. Now, it’s time for her community to show her how much we love, appreciate and believe in her by making her feel safe and empowered in return.

If you are unable to attend the event but still would like to donate, here is a link to her GoFundMe where you can also learn more about Annie and her condition:

We thank you for your kindness and generosity and we can’t wait to dance with you and share our love for our DEAR MAMA!
