Karaoke songstar Cindy of Samoa will MC a special night of entertainment this Sunday, dedicated to raising funds to rebuild Samoa after last week's devastating Tsunami.


Save My Samoa will transform K' Road's Naval & Family and Purple Bar into two levels of entertainment this Sunday 11 October, hosted by Cindy and her gal-pals Buckwheat and Miss Ribena.

Beginning at 7:30pm, a huge line-up of performances are scheduled including Pacific Island dancers, drag artists and live singers. K' Road favourites Aymnchidivah, The South Side Girls, the Caluzzi girls, Deezastar, Tonifah & the Moa Hunters, Tiffany Rose and the That's Kamp girls are among the line-up. DJ's James Leuii and Wanda La Mour will play until late. The door charge is just $10.

Last week's tsunami destroyed several villages in Samoa, with almost 200 people confirmed dead and many families left without homes. Rebuilding will take several months, with the help of international aid agencies and donations from generous people in the Pacific.

Cindy says: "it is just so sad. A lot of our friends and their families have died. I thank you all for being there for us. Any money we can raise will be greatly appreciated."
