Live music and good food to aid fight against malaria

August 6, 2012 by  

The Buzz Kill BBQ fundraiser will be held from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm on August 18 at the First Lutheran Church located at 815 Venice Blvd, Venice, California, which is approximately 16 miles from Torrance. The fundraising event is an effort by the Lutheran Malaria Initiative to end malaria in Africa. Its goal is to stop malaria death by 2015 and all proceeds will be directly used to provide medications, educational awareness trainings, and mosquito bed nets to families that live in Africa.

Presently, the statistics for malaria death shows that one child dies every 45 seconds but, with the fundraiser’s proceeds and assistance, it is hoped to be minimized until it is completely ended. Bed nets can protect children while they sleep from being bitten by mosquitoes carrying malaria. Donations will be accepted during the fundraising event and as little as $10 can provide a net for one of the African children.

At the event, the entire family can enjoy live entertainment, great food, and a raffle for prizes. The kids can play in a bounce house and be visited by some of Disney’s princesses. All of the entertainment, including the bounce house, is free and food can be purchased to support this very good cause.

Print companies have probably been used for the flyer printing to promote this worthy fundraiser. For more information, call 310-821-2740. Those who cannot attend the Buzz Kill BBQ event but wish to donate to the cause can do so via the Lutheran Malaria website.
