Stitches in Time Entertainment Night

Charity should make the giver sing,
Happy in the undertow of sharing.

A gift should not be given out of duty,

Remiss in both its pleasure and its beauty,

Intent on rectitude, bereft of caring.
The burdens of the world may be worth bearing,

Yet gifts should still a certain lightness bring.

Parkville International Student’s Association (PISA), a club which I am involved in, will be holding this fantastic entertainment night called ‘Stitches in Time’ to help raise funds for Operation STITCHES. Operation STITCHES is a Christian based NGO whose vision is to help kids living in inner-city high-rise estate, changing their lives for the better.

‘Stitches in Time’ will be held on Friday, 24th August 2007 at Cossar Hall, Victorian College of Pharmacy, Monash University. It will start at 6.30pm and end at approximately 9.15pm. Tickets cost $12 each and come with a number of complimentary vouchers. All profits will go to Operation STITCHES. We hope to raise at least $2000 for them via this event.

They will be a variety of performances from students of Victorian College of Pharmacy, Melbourne University and RMIT. We also have two well-known guest performers: Jessica Paige, a multi-award winning singer and songwriter and Steve Romig, who is awarded Melbourne Blues Association Song, Band and Male Artist of the Year awards 2007.

They will also be a variety of dances, a magician show, bands, a string quartet and solo singers: all performed by talented students. Light refreshment will be served prior to the start of the event.

Tickets are on sale now. If you are interested, please contact me at khoboonphiaw[at]hotmail[dot]com for the tickets. I do hope you all can support this event and tell your friends about it. It will be fun and indeed hugely rewarding.

Thank you in advance! =)
