Rhythms for Africa, a concert benefiting HopeWest’s sister hospice in rural Tanzania, will give members in our community the opportunity to support a meaningful cause all while enjoying the musical talent of Hazel Miller, accompanied by Dana Marsh on keyboard and Rich Lamb on bass.

The sold out event will be held on Wednesday, May 22 at Two Rivers Winery with the reception and silent auction at 6 p.m. and the concert at 7 p.m. The event is moving inside due to weather.

Rhythms for Africa is presented by The Africa Partnership Committee at HopeWest, composed of employees and volunteers who give of their time to enhance the lives of people in Tanzania, Africa, who are seriously ill. Your support will provide staff and volunteers in Ilembula, Tanzania with medical, nutritional and educational supplies to care for patients and families.

“Having the opportunity to travel to Ilembula and visit our sister hospice has been life changing,” said Beth Brown, HopeWest Africa Partnership Committee Member and HopeWest employee. “All funds raised by the committee is used to support Africa directly. I have personally observed the impact of our giving and the outstanding stewardship of the resources, money, and donations. The cultural exchange and opportunity to improve lives across the globe is amazing.”

HopeWest partnered with Ilembula Palliative Care eleven years ago through Global Partners in Care. This organization works to ensure that the seriously ill, and their families, find compassion and relief from suffering at the end of life. The partnering initiative of Global Partners in Care links African hospice and palliative care providers with American hospices and organizations for programmatic support, financial aid and technical assistance.
