You're invited to Africa Night on Saturday, June 4, at BICS. Come enjoy an evening of fun, food and fabulous music!

You'll feast on a traditional African dinner and be entertained by the amazing Kokoma African Heritage Ensemble featuring MaObong Oku, voted one of Vancouver's favourite performers by the People's Choice of BC. There will be a raffle and dancing with DJ Cam Hayduk.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and a ride home will be provided. It's a chance to get together with friends, have a rocking night out, and support a great cause.

Africa Night is a fundraiser for the Africa Village Project Association. We need your help to raise enough money to buy malaria nets for everyone in Okaseni Village, Tanzania. Malaria kills about three million people every year, most of them children in the developing world. But the most effective way to prevent malaria is to use a simple, insecticide-treated malaria net. It can cut the rate of malaria to about zero. We'd like to buy nets for all 4,000 residents of Okaseni.

Tickets are $35 for adults and are limited, so get yours right away. They are available at Phoenix or by calling 947-0092.

Hope to see you there! For more info on the Africa Village Project Association, visit
