Singing for Society is holding a charity karaoke evening to assist the Harvey Cohen Centre for Children with Disabilities. It will be hosted at the Circle Bar at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosebank, Johannesburg on the 26th of November 2011 (this week Saturday). The event starts at 6 PM for 6:30 PM.
After attending a few charity initiatives with friends Jarred Doyle decided that he wanted to do something for the Harvey Cohen Centre. After a night of throwing back ideas with his friend Deshnee Subramany, they came up with the name “Singing for Society” and figured out a way to help out this Non-Profit Organization.
The Harvey Cohen Centre is an independent organization, dedicated to the provision of care, training, education, rehabilitation, guidance and therapy for the mentally & physically impaired persons that will enable them to develop and promote independent living.
The Harvey Cohen Centre in Nancefield, Soweto has a staff consisting of 20 people. They currently have 114 beneficiaries. The Centre is a community-based organization rendering essential long-term care, therapy, skill development, and training and support services to mentally & physically disabled persons. The Harvey Cohen Centre was founded in 1969.
Initially Singing for Society was planned as an evening of karaoke with friends bringing donations of money, but the Crowne Plaza Hotel has recently agreed to provide them with a venue for the night. All the organizers of the event are asking from people attending is that they bring along cans of food, packets of rice, tins of coffee or any type of food stuffs that can last up to 12 months, a packet of sweets and a Soft toy to be donated to the centre.
If you live in the Johannesburg area, please try and attend this event on Saturday, its for a good cause. For more information about this event, contact Jarred on 0738415989.
