InPrint: Local artists pair CD releases with Partners for Others fundraiser

Windborn - Spitting BulletsLocal artists Windborn and Thomas Kjorven will be teaming up for a dual CD release party at The House on Friday, April 8. Windborn will be releasing their first full-length album entitled Spitting Bullets and Thomas Kjorven will release his latest album, Home Made.

Although both artists are proud and excited to release their new albums, the main focus of the night will not just be on their new bodies of work but also on raising funds for Partners for Others.

This Canadian organization is committed to addressing the needs of the poor and vulnerable, and providing the tools and training which will empower them to meet their future needs.

Over the past 16 years, Partners for Others have shipped over 2.5 million pounds of donated goods to the South Pacific, Asia, the Caribbean, and Southern Africa. Partners for Others ships clothing, food, medical equipment and supplies, school books, tools, farming and industrial equipment, computers and building materials.

The dual CD release and fundraiser featuring Windborn and Thomas Kjorven will be held at The House (Unit 1, 240 Lougheed Rd.) on Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door and after venue costs are covered, all money made will go to charity. CD sales will be by donation with proceeds going to charity as well. If you are interested in making a larger donation or are interested in sponsorship, everything is in place for tax receipts.
