This concert is organised by the Ebenezer Child Care Trust to raise funds for an orphanage in Zambia. It is a wonderful charity doing great work. All proceeds go to the charity.

Do invite your family, neighbours and friends and help us make this last Ebenezer Fund Raising Event for the year a memorable one. For the more funds we can raise means more children Ranji and her Ebenezer team in Livingstone can help.

16-22nd October is being celebrated as Anti-Poverty week and the Friends of Ebenezer, together with Mrs Marj White of North Maleny, will be holding a Variety Charity Concert on Sunday 23rd October. How fitting to end Anti-Poverty week with a Charity Concert because the funds raised will be sent to the Ebenezer Child Care Trust in Livingstone Zambia which is taking care of 405 orphaned and vulnerable children. ECCT is also providing for elderly grandparents endeavouring to raise their orphaned grand children who attend the Ebenezer School!

Anyone who is interested in helping to reduce poverty and hardship is invited to come for an afternoon of great music and dance. The Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra, Buderim Male Choir and the Talara Primary College Dance Group will entertain patrons royally! Also, during afternoon tea-time, there will be a floral display by members of the Maleny Garden Club.
