Rochester band Violet Mary is hosting its second annual holiday fundraising event at Lovin’ Cup Bistro and Brews featuring special guests Sisters of Murphy and Aaron Rizzo! These local musicians are donating their time and talents to team up with the Ugandan Water Project to provide clean water to hundreds of people half a world away. The Ugandan Water Project, based in Bloomfield, NY, provides clean water and sanitation solutions which have transformed hundreds of communities in Uganda.
In addition to performances by some of Rochester’ s finest musicians, this event will feature an array of raffles and prize packages that have been generously donated by local businesses.
“Our goal is to raise $8,000 through this one event, which will pay for the installation of two water tanks at primary schools in Uganda,” says James Harrington, Executive Director of the Ugandan Water Project. “These tanks afford children the opportunity to focus on their education withouth worrying about disease-laden drinking water. The average Ugandan spends five hours a day retrieving and purifying water from polluted streams. Our goal is to give water and give life to the people of Uganda.”
