Chelan to Africa 14th Annual Benefit Concert

Saturday, August 7, 2021


 

We are excited to be moving forward in 2021 and are optimistic as we plan our Live Chelan to Africa Concert and Benefit Auction, scheduled for Saturday, August 7th, at Benson Vineyards Estate Winery.

Thanks to you, our Virtual Event in 2020 raised over $11,000 to benefit children in Lesotho, Africa and our local children supported by Thrive Chelan Valley.  The impact of COVID, combined with the ongoing drought, has stressed the already fragile economic and medical systems in Lesotho, so these funds make a significant difference in the health of vulnerable children. Locally, 2020 was a year that required Thrive to reach out in new ways, and your support allowed them to continue their hard work.

We have already secured the venue (many thanks to Benson Vineyards Estate Winery!), and Kevin Jones Band is ready to entertain us with their live music. Dust off those dancing shoes and set aside Saturday, August 7th for a much-needed (on so many levels) party with a purpose on a warm summer evening overlooking beautiful Lake Chelan.

We appreciate the support that we have received from our community, our event attendees and our volunteers.  We look forward to sharing more details on the Benefit Concert as we get closer to the event.
