Benefits set for Kenyan charity

June 13, 2009


Comfort the Children, an Austin, Texas-based nonprofit that provides assistance to Kenya, will be host to two fundraisers this month.

The organization, founded in 2003 in Lawrence, organizes teams of volunteers who travel to Kenya and provide medical care, educational assistance, and day care services to the Maai Mahiu community, just outside Nairobi.

The first event will be from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. today at Salon di Marco, 733 Mass. Activities will include a wellness fair, food and drinks, an art show and music. Child care will be provided.

The second event will be from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. June 27 at Milton’s, 920 Mass., and will include a silent auction, food and drinks, and a conversation about Kansas’ connection to Kenya. The suggested donation is $25 at the door. For more information, contact Allison Edwards at 785-760-4296 or at
