The Global Afrikan Community Network (G.A.C.N.) is honoured to present its first annual Pan Afrikan Gala Fundraiser Summer Solstice Celebration. This years theme is “Purpose”. Join us on Saturday June 25, 2016 at the North York Civic Centre Community Hall. (Please see video attachment) Doors open at 5:30 pm with Dinner service at 7:00 pm. Dancing until midnight.
This formal event will be hosted by Ms. Ivy Prosper, a Ghanaian/Canadian television personality and international model. Sister Thandiwe Chimurenga, mother of Toronto Pan Afrikanism; will be giving a keynote speech on the Pan Afrikan Movement, its PURPOSE then and now. The pouring of libation will open this magical evening.
This years event will be catered by Chef Wayne and Chef Kareema. These two brilliant chefs will showcase their Jamaican and Trinidadian heritage by bridging together a powerful and flavourful expression of Caribbean Fusion.
No celebration is complete without African music. This year we will be welcoming the Ubuntu Drumming Team and Dance Company, in addition to a DJ.
Show off your own personal style as you dance to the sounds of the Caribbean islands and the African continent, rhythms ranging from traditional to modern day dance music.
Our purpose for this fundraising initiative is to resurrect Toronto’s premier AfroCaribbean Cultural Centre, the plans for this project is to house and showcase various products and services for the AfroCaribbean community. Seminar space complete with audio visual capabilities and a commercial kitchen will also be housed in this unique space!
