On August 20, 2014 VOCAB Communications will be hosting Meet Me In Africa, an artist showcase to raise funds for an orphanage in Africa. While on a media trip in Arusha, Tanzania, VOCAB founder Chrissy Newton was introduced to the children at Mama Jane’s Orphanage. Her emotional connection to these kids has inspired efforts to provide them with an environment that is safe, nurturing and educational.
This philanthropic project will focus on construction and education, with this year’s goal being to build an outdoor kitchen and a wooden fence. All proceeds from Meet Me In Africa will go directly to the orphanage to aid with the development of their infrastructure, including but not limited to hiring local tradesmen.
Meet Me In Africa will take place at Speakeasy 21 and will be hosted by Taylor Kaye (KiSS 92.5) and Nana Aba Ducan (Radio 2 Top 20 at CBC), and will feature performances by JUNO nominated Alysha Brilla, iSH with DJ Sanga Genesis, Melissa Bel, Craig Stickland, and Broken Sons, as well as a special appearance by JUNO winner Jully Black.
