A Day For Africa Fundraiser

Mark June 18th on your calendars! Monica's annual A Day For Africa fundraiser has grown and will take place this year at the St John the Divine Church hall in Courtenay on 5th Street, starting at 11 am. Details TBA, but there will be a community drum circle (with Monica of Rhythm Spirit), followed by a Samba/Funk rhythm "appetizer" (with Robin Layne of Tambura Rasa -see next post!) and other surprises to round out the event by about 1 pm. This event is by donation and all proceeds will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation (www.stephenlewisfoundation.org) via A Day For Africa (www.adayforafrica.com). Last year drummers and rhythm enthusiasts at the Wednesday Farmer's Market in Courtenay raised well over $300 in just one hour - this year's goal is to at least double that! Watch for more info in coming posts...
