Artists for AIDS Awareness

I’d like to bring a concert for a good cause to the attention of Cape Town’s more refined music lovers… I told you about a wonderful artist that we had recently been introduced to, (Prof) Jimmie Earl Perry – well he sent through this press release today:

March 2007
For immediate release

What: Artists for AIDS Awareness
Where: Bellville Civic Centre, Bellville
When: Saturday, 14 April 2007
Time: 20:00
Entrance fee: R30 (thirty bucks... thats all!)

[Cape Town]

The Africa Institute for HIV/AIDS Management, a non-profit organisation linked to the Africa Centre for HIV/AIDS Management at Stellenbosch University, is hosting a music concert on Saturday 14 April at 20:00 in the Bellville Civic Centre.

The theme of the evening is “Artists for AIDS Awareness”. Through creative arts such as dance, music and comedy the aim is to continue making more people aware of their individual responsibility to help turn around the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa.

Singer, actor and performer Jimmie Earl Perry will be joined by the spectacular Dance For All Youth Company, songwriter and vocalist Verity (left) and her band, cabaret artist Godfrey Johnson, comedian Nik Rabinowitz, the Educational Theatre Company of the Africa Centre for HIV/AIDS Management, pianist Brendan Hollins and special guest spiritual singers Lana Rumble and Athena Williams.

It will be a one-night-only event, which will include the presentation of an educational bursary of R5 000, sponsored by INTEC.

Refreshments will be available.

The entrance fee is R30 at the door, or reserved seats can be booked through Bianca Farao
on 021 808 3006.

Something to do – for a good cause too of course – on a Saturday night.

I spent the day fishing off the coast between Gordon’s Bay and Rooiels yesterday, bobbing along in a rubber duck with Ian of Iraq, and thoroughly enjoying the awesome weather the Cape had – that was before todays rain scupperd our weekend camping plans!

I am glad to say that my faith in fishing along our shores has again increased, our boat having caught 5 different kinds of fish, and me being able to braai a couple of Red Roman for the family last night – ag, maa dis lekka innie Kaap (RIGHT - life is wonderful in the Cape!).
