Benefit Concert for Zimfest!

Greetings Zimfest community,

Mylinda King is putting on her 23rd annual student marimba concert. Every year she and her students use the event to raise money for a good Zimbabwean cause. This year’s recipient is Zimfest!

The concert is free but all proceeds from the raffle and silent auction will benefit Zimfest. But wait, it gets better! We will also be raffling off an exquisite African-inspired quilt lovingly made by the Cama Beach Quilters  All quilt proceeds will benefit Tariro,  Ancient Ways and the Portland-Mutare Sister City Association.

When: March 3, 2018   Noon -3:00pm
Doors open 11:30am for an informative slideshow about Zimfest and Raffle preview

Where: Portland Foursquare Church, 2830 NE Flanders St.  Portland, OR 97232
If you can’t make the concert but would still like to help out Zimfest you can donate a raffle or silent auction item. Gift certificates and other items can be purchased on your behalf and donated to the raffle.

    The Maharimbas of Corvallis have retired after 30 years. We have a set of 5 marimbas we are interested in selling. Would you be interested in advertising them for your event, and taking a % of the purchase price? We can deliver them there for the weekend. They have no F#. Also have a timbale and other percussion.

    Sara I would be open to selling the Marimbas at my event as long as you can not only get them there, but also take them away if they don’t sell, which they probably won’t on the spot. I simply cannot fit more marimbas in my house 😬
    It might make more sense to make a take-away flyer with photos, descriptions, price, contact info etc. I would be happy to put out a stack of these. If someone at my concert buys the set would you be willing to donate 10-20% to Zimfest?
