In this week’s post, I’m happy to give you more detailed information about this year’s annual Tariro benefit concert in Eugene, OR. This year’s benefit will take place on Saturday, September 11, from 5-8pm, at the Friendly St. Church on 22nd and Friendly in Eugene, OR.
No matter where you live, if you’d like to support this year’s benefit event, we are accepting donations for the silent auction which will be held at the event. If you have something you’d like to donate, please contact us through our brand new website (which I love!!!), or simply mail your item to us at Tariro: Hope and Health for Zimbabwe’s Orphans, PO Box 50273, Eugene, Oregon 97405. We would really appreciate a few additional donations to fill out the offerings at this year’s silent auction.
And now for a little more information about the event itself: Tariro’s 2010 benefit is being organized by Lola Broomberg, in conjunction with participants from imagine That!, a creative arts extravaganza for youth. Here is Lola’s description of what is planned for this year’s exciting benefit:
A dinner, performance, and silent auction for the benefit of Tariro will be held on September 11th. This event will include many wonderful aspects. A barbecue dinner, with pulled pork or vegetarian sandwiches, two sides, and a Sweet Life dessert, will be available for $10-25 per person (sliding scale), $8 for kids. There will be live music by the stars of the Imagine That! summer camp and Kudana, an an extraordinary silent auction, with products and services provided by many local businesses.
I’m looking forward to this amazing evening, which also happens to fall the day before my birthday! So please help us spread the word about this great event on Facebook, and come join me in celebrating my birthday in support of Tariro’s work!
