DJ Williams Projekt Brings the Noise for a Good Cause

Industry: Non Profit

Richmond, VA (PRUnderground) February 14th, 2015

Music lovers can check out Dj Williams Projekt on March 5th when they play in support of ACE Liberia and the Anne Sandell Independent School (ASIS).  The 2nd Annual Projekt for Progress will be hosted by the The Answer Brewpub at 6008 W. Broad Street from 6 to 10 PM and will feature silent auctions, raffles and more.

“I am very proud to be a descendent of a Liberian mother who is also a founder of ACE Liberia,” says D.J. Williams. “Myself, along with my band, are happy to be lending our services to another ACE fundraising event which will help fund the efforts to restore education and health systems to a country that my family has very deep roots in.”

ACE Liberia’s vision is to nurture, inspire and support the development of strong citizens that will contribute to the development of strong communities.  One of their primary projects has been the development of a model elementary school program through work with ASIS that can be shared with other schools in the country.  The Ann Sandell Independent School is a K through 9th grade community based school for underprivileged youth that might not otherwise benefit from basic education due to limited access to public schools.

“It is gratifying to be able to work with a community of supporters, willing to contribute by positively impacting lives on a global level. What better way to do so than with our youth, our future. Thanks for bridging the gap through sharing,” says Sophie Williams, Executive Director of Ace Liberia.

The event is open to people 21 and older.  Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 or at at the door for $20.  Ticket price includes drinks and appetizers.  To purchase tickets go to http://www.aceliberia.org/event/d-j-williams-project-fundraiser.

About ACE Liberia

Africa Community Exchange (ACE) began with a group of concerned, former Liberian residents now living in the United States who wanted to make a contribution to the country that had positively impacted their lives.

Liberia had experienced 14 years of civil war and now and Ebola crisis that have resulted in human despair and destruction.  The group decided to create a non-profit organization that would serve as a bridge to connect Liberia education and health entities to resources that would help build capacity and improve quality of service.  ACE is incorporated and qualified as a charitable organization, making gifts to it tax deductible.

Our goal is to facilitate resources and funding for selected educational, health, and livelihood projects. We have targeted the African country of Liberia as our initial focus.  ACE programs and operations are conducted and supported in the U.S. and Liberia.
