Last Friday we threw our first charity event at Off The Cuff, Brixton and thanks to all you beautiful people who came, IT WENT OFF!
All profits made on the night are being donated to Anno’s Africa – a fantastic charity that helps kids in African slums by providing arts courses and programmes, teaching things like music, crafts and dance. Some of these classes not only gives these kids a new lease of life, but also lead to invaluable scholarship opportunities.
So, you must be all asking, how much have we raised?
FOUR-HUNDRED-AND-TEN smacaroonies!!! (£410)
You smashed it! I’m sure Anno’s Africa will be pleased.
Oh, and speaking of drum rolls, big ups to the disco heads who got involved with the bongo drums by the stage. You definitely helped the energy spiral out of control.
Throughout the night we had our resident DJs Donzai, Theon Bower, Takao and Kingtrix throwing out a silly selection of world disco and a bunch of classic belters. Our guests of the night, Late Night Disco, were incredibly well received and continued to get people groovin’, moovin’ and palm tree balloonin’ *.
We ended the night with an explosive b2b2b2b2b set, where all the DJs played off each other, working the crowd into a frenzy of sweat, beer, cheer and ‘oh dear’. There were some incredible shapes thrown. To say the least, it was an intimate affair and judging by the fixed smiles on faces and the slightly incoherent chanting, it was blatant that everyone had a funk-tastico time.
We also created a series of bespoke, limited edition Pangaea Disco – Anno’s Africa t-shirts, ethically and sustainably made by the mighty Birdsong London. We were selling them on the night but there are still a few available here. Go get ‘em while you can!
You came, you donated, you danced. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks again.
Oh, and to keep up to date with our next endeavor or other fun give our Facebook page a like if you haven’t already.
Until next time!
