Jazz for Africa

Penticton’s Thursday Night Jazz Band is hosting its sixth annual benefit concert this week for Grandmothers for Africa.

The charity fundraises for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which supports grandmothers in sub-Saharan countries of Africa who are left to raise their AIDS orphaned grandchildren.

Volunteer Norma Lippa says the benefit concert is close to a sell out every year, “because they are such an amazing group.”

Lippa says the Penticton wing of Grandmothers for Africa have about 25 full members, with other branches throughout the Okanagan.

The benefit concert takes place Jan. 18 at the Barking Parrot. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Lakeside Hotel front desk or any member of the band.
