World records solve poverty.
On Saturday, Sept. 22, Gas City invites everyone to an event called “World Playing for Change Day 33:3.” Beginning at 1 p.m. in Eugene “Beaner” Linn Park on S. Broadway Street, “Play for Change” has set aside a day to raise support for Blood:Water Mission, an organization dealing with HIV/AIDS and clean water in Africa.
Attempting to break the world’s largest hand-drumming lesson in Guinness World Records, Bernard Woma, the cultural ambassador of Ghana, will lead a djembe lesson. Anyone interested in participating must check in his or her drum starting at 1 p.m. The drum lesson will, consequently, start at 3:33.
Furthermore, Grammy and Dove award-winning artist Jars of Clay will hit the stage for a free concert at approximately 5 p.m. The band only requested that a benefit offering take place to support Blood:Water Mission.
