On a balmy night in February more than 300 people gathered at a property in the Adelaide hills for Music for Moshi, a private function featuring live music, food and wine in a magnificent setting.
South Australian musicians contributed their talents to entertain the crowd, and local businesses provided meat on the spit, beer, wine and cider at low cost to support the event.
The event was the brainchild of brother and sister Nick and Isabel Van Den Brink and their family, with all profits donated to CAPDA.
The target of $5000 was met from ticket sales, but there was also a silent auction and donation tins which raised nearly as much again!
Part of the money raised will go towards improving continence management for children with spina bifida. The rest will provide basic equipment such as beds and mattresses and mosquito nets at the Gabriella centre outside Moshi. It will also establish a community garden for the children and teenagers who attend the centre.
Also enjoying the music were much of CAPDA board, and Tanzanian Honorary Consul in South Australia, Sossi Msomi.
The night was such a success that the Van Den Brinks are considering holding another concert in the future!
