A local charity known for giving to those in need has found themselves in need.

Kelowna musicians are teaming up for an April 8 concert to benefit Revelstoke-based charity Partners for Others, a Revelstoke charity that ships and distributes clothing, food, medical equipment, school supplies, tools and other equipment to needy recipients in the South Pacific, Asia, the Caribbean and Southern Africa.

The concert will raise funds to send a shipment of clothing and medical supplies to Lesotho, Africa.

Kelowna musician Jeff Pike has lived in Revelstoke, where he worked with Ray Brosseuk of Partners for Others to build their warehouse here. Pike came up with the idea to put on a concert to aid Partners for Others. Cash was needed for an upcoming shipment, so Pike and his band Windborn teamed up with fellow Kelowna musician Thomas Kjorven to put on a fundraising concert.

On Mar. 17, a heavy snow load on the roof of Partners for Others’ Big Eddy warehouse caused the roof to cave in. The benefit concert will go on as the shipment was in a part of the warehouse that wasn’t damaged.

The event will also be a CD release party for both Windborn and Kjorven. Proceed for the concert will go towards Partners for Others.

The concert takes place Friday, April 8 at The House, located a 1-240 Lougheed Road in Kelowna. Cover $10 at the door.
