Sojo Groove Night 2017

By Camp Sojourner (other events)

Friday, October 13 2017 7:00 PM 10:30 PM

Join Camp Sojourner for our 10 year anniversary celebration and performances by Philly musicians to benefit our year-round activities! CAMP SOJOURNER, GIRLS’ LEADERSHIP CAMP is a nonprofit leadership program serving Philly girls ages 8-17, offering affordable summer camp and free year-round activities.

Performances will include:

PAULETTE BRANSON & MIXED PEOPLE, a funky, soul fusion band with hints of rock and world music. Versatile musicianship, raw lyrics, and full harmonies create a genuine, mixed musical experience that will get you dancing on your feet and singing along.

GRETCHEN ELISE AND BAND, performing interactive, original music that combines an international flavor with shades of Philly jazz & soul.

UNIDOS DA FILADELFIA SAMBA GROUP, a community-based samba school whose mission is to spread the joy and excitement of Brazilian percussion.

Performance by our very own Sojourners and other special guests!

Sojo Groove Night is happening at THE ROTUNDA (4014 Walnut Street) in Philadelphia, a community-gathering place that is fueled by the belief that art is a catalyst for social change.

SUGGESTED DONATION $25, with additional donation and discounted tickets available--if you can pay more, please do! Our goal is to raise $3,000 to help launch our year-round programs for Philly girls at no cost to families, including our Teen Leadership Institute, College Prep Squad, Bartram's Garden farm days, self-defense classes, college tours, creative arts, social justice action projects, and more. If you need to pay less than the suggested donation, please do--we want all of our community to be able to attend.

FOOD AND RAFFLE will be available at the event, including gift certificates and gift baskets from fabulous local businesses.

We hope you can join us on October 13 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, enjoy great music, and help provide much needed programs for Philly girls!
