Myanmar fundraiser rocks Victoria church hall

Rukus headlining dance to raise funds for children's charity

On Nov. 17, OrphanAsia Society hosts a dance fundraiser for its upcoming humanitarian trip to Myanmar in January.

The society was founded by Ralph Newton-White and Marlowe Jaxen, who have been visiting the country for 15 years and helping children there meet their basic survival needs.

They are selling tickets to the event, looking for items for its live auction and inviting those interested to join them on their upcoming trip.

Rukus Rocks for Orphans features 1950s and 60s music. Tickets are $20. It takes place at St. John the Divine Church Hall, 925 Balmoral St. For more information, email orphanasia@gmail.com, or visit orphanasia.org.
