Event Archive - Raising money for a school in Africa: 22nd Century, Hot Lucy, No Quarter

Thu. January 21st 2010 The Yale Hotel (No Minors)
9:00 PM - 2:30 AM doors at 7:30 PM
Tickets at: The Yale Hotel
Presented by: Stella Panagiotidis
On Thursday January 21, Hot Lucy, Montgomery / Dupray ‘No Quarter’ and 22nd Century will be rockin’ out in order to raise money to build a school for the Afretech Aid Society and the Tujifunze Project. Tujifunze, which is Swahili for learning, is an organization in Tanzania, Africa dedicated to providing basic education to the youngest and most vulnerable children in Mwanza, Tanzania. Event organizer Susan Bibbings travelled to Mwanza after assisting Tujifunze for three years from her home base in Canada. Bibbings discovered that the school which serviced more than 60 children was a 12 x 12 foot concrete room located next to a dilapidated butcher’s shop. The school lacked supplies and provided students with inadequate books. “We’re in the business of getting as many children as possible under the shelter of this giant book,” explains Bibbings. “We hope to build the school roof in the shape of a giant book,” she adds. Tickets to SkoolAid Benefit are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Price of admission includes a silent auction, raffle items and door prizes. Proceeds from this event will go to Afretech Aid Society for the Tujifunze Build a School Project. Doors open at 7.30pm. Show begins at 8.30pm. Yale VIP passes not accepted for this event.

THree veterans of the west coast music scene pumping out loud, 4/4 time hard rock with a cynical and infectious style. 22nd Century plays venues from New York to L.A. and usually sells out. If you like Foo Fighters, GreenDay and Nirvana, you'll like them. more info
