The gumboot dancers from Kliptown, South Africa are back in Shanghai this weekend raising money for the Kliptown Youth Program. After an incredibly successful event last year, Cocktails for Kliptown is coming back to Cotton’s tomorrow for an evening of dance, drinks, barbecue, and a dinner date auction! Come out and support a community program benefiting youth in one of South Africa’s poorest townships.
If you can’t make it tomorrow, you’ll have another opportunity to see the gumboot dancers at the Westin special South Africa brunch on Sunday. They’ll have South African food, wines, lucky draw prizes, and of course the gumboot dancers themselves. Brunch runs from 11:30am to 3pm, and the dance performance will happen midway through. For reservations, call 86 21 63350577 or email [email protected]
