This event is being hosted by the Regina chapter of Grandmothers 4 Grandmothers. As the organization’s name indicates, it’s a group of local grandmothers and those with a similar life perspective who conduct periodic fundraisers in the city to help support grandmothers in Africa who find themselves caring for young children who have been orphaned by the AIDS pandemic that has hit many countries on the continent extremely hard.
The support is channelled through the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and the guest-speaker at this fundraising dinner is Lewis’s daughter Ilana Landsberg-Lewis who is the executive director of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
As you can see from the accompanying poster (click to enlarge), Jabula is being held at Queensbury Centre on Saturday April 30. In addition to the dinner and guest-speaker, there will be a performance by the Campbell Collegiate Choir and a silent auction.
