Rita Henkel, chairperson for the Orangeville GoGo Grannies, part of the Grandmother Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, says the local group is planning to raise funds with a concert and a comedy.

“We are one of over 250 charitable Granny groups across Canada supporting African grandmothers raising their grandkids who have lost their parents to AIDS,” she said in an email disclosing the plans.

The concert is to take place on May 7 at Claude Presbyterian Church, when the Marion Singers will perform a benefit, “Spring Celebration!” at the church on Highway 10 at 7:30 p.m. The enjoyable evening will be just in time for Mother’s Day.

Tickets may be purchased for $15 online or by calling 519-941-9966. Tickets at the door will be $20. Doors open at 7 p.m.

In cooperation with the Caledon Townhall Players the GoGos are also selling tickets for the comedy ‘Always a Bridesmaid’ on May 13th. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., curtain time  8:15. Tickets may be purchased at Running Free, 88 First St., Orangeville, by cash or cheque. For more information please call 519-942-1738.

All proceeds from both events will go to the grassroots projects funded by the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
