WEST AFRICAN FOOD AND CULTURE COMING TO SPRINGFIELD
SPRINGFIELD — In early November, an exclusive gathering entitled This is Our Culture is coming to central Illinois. The evening will include authentic west African cuisine and three stations where participants can interact with Sierra Leonian culture (station one will be a full scale replica classroom; station two will feature twenty-one hand-carved authentic tribal masks; station three will present a brief history of the slave trade in Sierra Leone).
All proceeds raised will be used to benefit the 16 children at Hope Orphan Home. The sponsor of the event is Nelson Audiology of Litchfield, IL.
This is Our Culture will take place at Erin's Pavilion in Springfield, IL (4965 S. 2nd St.) on Friday, November 8, at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $35 per person; only 150 are available. They can be purchased at www.thisisourculture.org.
Hope Orphan Home, a non-profit based in Sierra Leone, west Africa, exists to give sixteen orphans what they need to thrive: a home, food, clothing, an education, and medical and spiritual care. To learn more, visit www.hopeorphanhome.org or call 1-217-652-5621.
