Cory Branan Concert and Bloody Mary Brunch Benefit
Spend a sizzling Sunday afternoon listening to Cory Branan’s soulful music and drinking cold Bloody Marys all in the name of an important cause – creating economic opportunities for vulnerable women in post-genocide Rwanda. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Cory Branan has teamed up with Hands of Mothers, a Memphis-based nonprofit organization, to host this exciting benefit concert and empower Rwandan women entrepreneurs.
Cory Branan has been heralded by Rolling Stone as “a stunning lyricist, ferocious guitar player and gravelly-voiced singer, characteristics that add up to an Americana ‘must see.’ He has proven himself as a top-notch songwriter, fierce lyricist, and a hyper-dynamic performer.” Cory just released his fifth album – ADIOS.
This benefit will be a joyous celebration of our global community and the strength of women to overcome extraordinary obstacles. All funds raised will be used to help these vulnerable Rwandan women start and sustain chicken/egg businesses, which enable them to build resilient livelihoods, create financial independence, and produce an invaluable food source for a community of women that, on average, eat less than one meal per day.
The suggested (minimum) donation for this event is $30 ($35 at the door) and includes delicious food and adult beverages.
A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact us for more information or to register as a sponsor.
