“Old Bones” 10th Anniversary Benefit Concert and Dinner April 14th at 6:30
to benefit the Ugandan children of Village2Village Project.
Please join us in transforming children with stolen futures into leaders.

Come out on Saturday April 14th at 6:30 pm and join the “Old Bones” for some feel-good country and gospel music at the First Baptist Church of Bristol! A collection will benefit Village2VillageProject’s most vulnerable children in Uganda.

“Old Bones”, a talented group of local country musicians, will be treating long-time fans and newcomers alike to their flavor of song and humor that delights all ages. New England audiences have enjoyed the songs and stories of “Old Bones” for years. They have played to packed houses and raised many thousands of dollars over the last decade for Village2Village Project, a 15-year-old organization born in Bristol that now supports more than 134 orphaned and needy children and HIV+ guardians in northeastern Uganda.

The church is serving a hearty shepherd’s pie supper before the concert at 5:30 pm. All funds will also benefit Village2Village Project. It will be a delicious meal of shepherd’s pie, homemade rolls and brownies a la mode. The suggested donation for supper is $10 for adults and $5 for children 6-11. Children 5 and under are free.

Your donations will help the newest children in a remote rural area, where desperate families often eat only one meal every other day, and the school performance is the lowest in Uganda. V2V builds educated leaders for this area one at a time, so they can change their communities themselves.

Laurie Kroll, the founder and Executive Director of V2V will be in Bristol to share about her recent trip and the organization’s expansion. V2V’s leaders who have graduated include an attorney, a doctor, a teacher, an accountant and two with business degrees (one with an MBA). More leaders are being trained in agriculture, rural development, social work, nursing, civil engineering, architecture, lab technology, mechanics and entrepreneurship.

So, save the date for the 14th, have a terrific evening of Vermont musical entertainment, eat a hearty home-cooked meal, and benefit a charity that is saving lives, giving hope and developing leaders in rural Africa!

Village2Village Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a registered NGO in Uganda. To find out more about V2V’s unique leadership program or to donate, please visit www.village2villageproject.org, or find them on Facebook.
