The dinner and dance organised by St Pius Choir of the Roman Catholic Church and its partners at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre on Friday received a warm reception with people pledging their support.
The choir organised the event to raise funds to buy musical equipment among others.
Former Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director Alexious Nampota was the guest of honour during the event and donated a cheque worth K150,000.
Speaking during the event, Nampota said he was happy to be the guest of honour as well as being associated with St Pius Choir as he is also a product of St Pius Primary School.
“I did my primary at St Pius and so I am happy to be associated with St Pius Choir as well. Their songs continue to bless us,” he said.
During the event, which also provided the much -needed entertainment to the people, there was also auctioning of a sofa which went at K500,000.
According to the one of the organisers they were satisfied with the way people responded to the event.
“We notified people about the event way too late but many came to support us. All we want is for St Pius Choir to grow, they need to have good equipment and also transport,” said Jangale.
There were also raffle draws during the dinner and dance which saw people winning different items.
Over K200,000 was raised on stage when the choir was performing and it was even exciting as people could be selected randomly to lead the choir in different songs.
St Pius Choir is one of the oldest groups in the country and has nine albums to its credit as well as one DVD. Some of their popular songs include ‘Mayi Maria,’ and ‘Ndibvina.’
