On Thursday, December 1st, The Shine Restaurant and Gathering Place in Boulder will feature a fabulous musical event that is a fundraiser for a new Akpe Cultural Center in Kokrobite, Ghana. The fundraiser will feature the talents of Wendy Woo, Logo Ligi, Desi Caliente and many more, along with a silent auction and a market of African art and goods. The event is supported by the Boulder County Arts Alliance and folks can make contributions to the Alliance to benefit the Akpe Cultural Center.
