A Benefit Concert featuring local singer songwriter Jeff Kagan & Paige Doughty, the Sudanese “Didinga Singers” and the Boulder Jewish Day School choir will be held as part of a community-wide fund raising effort to send 2,000 bed nets to protect children aged 5 and under in Chukudum, South Sudan.
For $10 each, a mosquito net can be provided to families who otherwise could not afford the protection that these nets provide from malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa.
Please consider having your child participate in this educational and philanthropic endeavor.
This event is sponsored by the Southern Sudan Health Partnership (SSHP), the Boulder Jewish Day School (BJDS), Har Hashem and Bonai Shalom.
The concert will be held on Sunday, January 16, 2011, 12:00pm – 2:30pm (Lunch will be provided). At the Shapiro Home, 6391 Swallow Lane, Boulder, CO 80303. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 449-5569. Suggested Donation: 2 bed nets ($20)
