PAGO Grannies Benefit Concert

The PAGO Grannies will host a benefit concert on Sunday, October 2, 2014 at Char's Landing, featuring Bev Zizzy.

Zizzy is a powerful singer/songwriter who is dedicated to the power of giving. Her original CD, titled Woman in Black, combined with her community work, earned her the 2009 Regina YWCA Woman of Distinction in the Arts Award.

Her performance history includes opening for Blues Hall of Fame Artist John Hammond, as well as sharing the stage with Colin James.  

The PAGO Grannies are excited about the concert, which will raise local awareness about their group and the wonderful work being achieved by the Stephen Lewis Foundation with the grandmothers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

"I have a special place in my heart for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and its affiliated Grandmothers for Grandmothers (G4G) Chapters," Zizzy said. "Since its inception, I have fundraised extensively with the Regina Chapter G4G, including co-ordinating a major music event in 2009 (featuring Little Miss Higgins) that was recorded by CBC, and performing recently at their annual Benefit Dinner last May. When my active PAGO Granny member sister-in-law heard I was going to be in town, well, the rest is history."

Zizzy will perform on Sunday, October 2 from 2 to 4 p.m.
