DJ Aid is a further in the series of monthly event organised by Rossini Events in support of Feed A Smile.
Taking place over eight hours on Friday, April 14th, 2017, the event will feature music from seven Second Life DJs and will be topped-out by vocalist Collin Martin.
For the event, Rossini Events are “coming home”, so to speak, to Kenya itself, in the form of the Feed A Smile Kenya area at their headquarters at Lavender Fields.
The music will be played amidst the model of the Nakuru school Feed Smile, through its parent organisation, Live and Learn Kenya (LLK), is in the process of building. The model, build for LLK / Feed A Smile by RAG Randt, is a superb setting, reminding us all of the work LLK / Feed A Smile does in supporting underprivileged children in Nakuru.
The line-up for DJ Aid is, at the time of writing, as follows. All times SLT:
||DJ Pepper Curie (Muddy’s Music Cafe, Back Alley Blues)|
||Ana Alchemi (Muddy’s Music Cafe)|
||DJ Jaxssin (Purple Gator, Floyds Bar)|
||DJ Valeri Rossini (Muddy’s Music Cafe)|
||DJ Laurendawn (Muddys Country)|
||DJ Noel (Wet Willies, Back Alley Blues, Junkyard Blues)|
||DJ Tril (Big Daddys, Black Horse Country)|
||Collin Martin singing live.|
This event follows on from Rossini Event’s successful music marathons in January, February and March on behalf of Feed A Smile, and details on the DJs and artist involved can be found on the Rossini Events website.
About Feed A Smile
Feed A Smile is a programme run by Live and Learn Kenya (LLK) to provide nutritious warm lunches for over 400 children every day, paid for entirely from donations to the project. It is part of a broader programme managed by LLK, which includes finding sponsors to finance the education of children in Kenya, helping to provide them with everything they need: uniforms, shoes, text books, school supplies, etc., and the building of the Nakuru school, Kenya.
In addition, the organisation also provides medical and dental care for children, including check-ups and vaccinations. 100% of the donations received by LLK are transferred directly to Kenya to care for children, provide education, medicine, food, shelter and foster care. Nothing is lost to salaries, fees or administrative costs at LLK.
