Watoto Canada is hosting a fundraising event at the Victoria Conference Centre on Nov. 10 to help raise awareness and funds for the African orphans rescued and raised in the Watoto Children’s Villages in Uganda, East Africa.

The evening event will include a special concert performance by the sensational singing group Tenore.

The evening will feature Canadian recording artist, Marika Siewert.

The Watoto It Takes a Village photography contest winners will auction off their top images from their trip to Uganda where they visited Watoto, helping support and raise funds for the cause.

The fundraising efforts through the silent auction and donations will be sent to Watoto where the organization will continue to rescue the vulnerable, raise them up to be leaders, so they can rebuild their nation. Watoto impacts the lives of more than 2,500 children who have been orphaned and abandoned.

Tickets to the 7 p.m. show are $25 and can be purchased online at watotocanada.com or at the Watoto Canada office at 8-1950 Government St., or by phone at 250-361-4554.
