The Annual Band Aid Winter Blanket Drive for 2022 is already in full swing and stepping up multiple levels to bring Love and Warmth for many more beneficiaries than it ever did before.
With activities around the Band Aid Winter Blanket Drive's collection points for donations and distribution to beneficiaries already up and running, as with nearly all Band Aid SA initiatives, supporters can also look forward to gaining access to Exquisite Entertainment.
Finally, as lockdown levels have been eased, the Virtual World of The Uncle Cal Xperience Meets Reality as Uncle Cal hosts a long-awaited Live Outside Broadcast at the Oude Molen Eco Village in Pinelands on 4 Dec from 2pm to 10pm. As is the custom with most Uncle Cal events, those attending will once again be part of something special to enhance the lives of the less fortunate.
Through Uncle Cal’s partnership with Band Aid SA, attendees will through a Toy Drive tied to this event be helping to bring some much needed Festive Season Joy to the many underprivileged children directly served by NGO’s and Community Organisations that Uncle Cal &Band Aid SA are working with.
It is seldom that an entertainer, over a span of decades, continues to capture the imaginations of not only audiences but also that of other entertainers in a diverse variety of fields and still somehow continues to remain relevant while always evolving.
Not only was and is the originator of the Bruin Man Funk continually evolving but by all accounts Ameen Levy still manages to stick to his core identity as an artist, an entertainer and more importantly, as a person.
Sadly Ameen Levy and his family were struck by the devastating tragedy of losing their home in a fire on 22 September 2021. To help them through this difficult period, and help get the Ameen Levy Foundation back up and running, Band Aid along with Uncle Cal and P-Fore Online are hosting a benefit event for the entertainer who has not only worked with, influenced and paved the way for so many of his contemporaries and those young artists who he has given a platform to, but who has also given joy to audiences and fans all over the country.
When 3 Tons of Fun was formed 10 years ago, they truly broke the stereotype that only slender women can be sexy and they affirmed that fuller-bodied females can also successfully grace stages as artists and consistently remain popular with audiences. Their success calls for a big celebration and they are doing it in style on 9 September 2017.
