The Radius Club will be sponsoring a Rhythm ‘n’ Soul Benefit Concert in collaboration with AVSI-USA and Meeting Point International for AIDS relief in Uganda. The event will take place on Saturday, January 19, at 8:00 p.m., Coooper Union Auditorium, 7 East 7th Street (at Third Avenue).
The Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI) is an international not-for-profit, non-governmental organization founded in 1972. AVSI’s mission is to support human development in developing countries with special attention to education and the promotion of the dignity of every human person.
Meeting Point International, which operates in Uganda, provides medicine, clothing, food, education and jobs to women and children living with HIV/AIDS. The women at Meeting Point earn less than $1 a day, but when Hurricane Katrina hit, they collectively sent over $900 to New Orleans.
The Radius Club at York Prep will participate in various fundraising efforts to help these women and children in Uganda.
