The Peaceful Home for Children was founded in 2007 by Agnes and Joe. With the help of volunteers and many generous donations we provide these children with a safe, comfortable home, healthy meals, and a good education.

Academic success will allow these children to be productive members of society.  In addition to the cost of running the orphanage, the children must go away to school.  The cost of tuition is $1,000 US per year for grades 7-8 and $3,000 US per year for high school.  We are asking for your help to change the trajectory of their lives.  100% of your donation will go directly to the children.

This is our 4th annul Fundraising Event with the proceeds going to support the children at the Peaceful Home for Children in Kenya.

Come and enjoy an Evening of Live Entertainment, Silent Auction, Food. Wine Bar and more.

Catering by The Village Grocer. Look forward to sumptuous hot and cold hor douvres, a pasta station to die for and Evan's world famous roast beef. Partake of some of some premium wines from Evan's own cellar.

Our entertaining line up will be hosted by the voice of Africa himself MC Bonde.

Dueling Pianos is a celebration of the beautiful relationship between father and son.

A relationship that, but for a father’s determination, commitment and love, could have detoured to strife and opposition. It is a reminder that music has a central place in our lives, to inspire us in all ways, including our work.

Two generations are represented in a very fine narrative powerfully presented with two voices, speaking to the timeline of sacrifice to triumph, of one generation passing its best on to the next. And, from the father’s perspective as a renaissance leader, also speaking to the qualities of inspiring others that he wants to pass on to his son. The narrative and the specific musical pieces of Dueling Pianos are deliberately selected to demonstrate the pain and joy in reaching for and attaining excellence. Audiences are treated to masterful renditions of our own Oscar Peterson’s ‘Hymn to Freedom’, of John Coltrane’s ‘Giant Steps’ and more... arranged for two pianos, as the musicians weave the musical classics of Jazz, Classical, Calypso, Reggae and The Blues into their story, showing how the father prepared his son to understand and embrace his historical roots, the roots of music and the world’s great musicians.
