The cul­ture of Africa was cel­e­brated on Sat­ur­day at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity and it was all for a good cause. Arica in the Val­ley fea­tured mu­sic, danc­ing, din­ner and a fu­sion show. The event was in ben­e­fit of two sib­lings in Zam­bia who are in need of sickle cell treat­ment. The cost of the pro­ce­dure $30,000 US each. The event at­tracted about 300 and raised over $21,000. The Woeza Africa Mu­sic and Dance The­atre were a hit at the event and had at­ten­dees danc­ing in the aisles. Those wish­ing to donate can go to the Chi­bilu Chil­dren Sickle Cell Fund GoFundMe page or donate to the Africa in the Val­ley Ac­count at the lo­cal CIBC.
