Education for Africa Variety Show

The show is now complete and I am very happy with the results. It is the biggest event we have held to date and it went well. Over $2,800 was raised bringing our total for the year to about $9,200. With the federal government share, that is about $37,000 to help the young women in Africa start small businesses.

A great deal of thanks go to our performers who were all amazing and varied. I am getting great feedback on all of them. Thanks to Carly D from DAWG FM for being the M.C. and thanks to their  mascot (even if he did scare the daylights out of my almost two-year old granddaughter). I guess DAWG's dog was a little larger than she was used to seeing.

Pictures of the show are available by clicking on the photo to the right.
Many thanks to all our volunteers and silent auction and door prize donors. These things couldn't happen without them.

We are looking forward to continuing our work for the women of africa.
