Will’N’Ska and PzW charity event: we hope it will become a Christmas tradition.

It can be said that the yesterday charity event held by the band Will’N’Ska and authors of the blog ‘Pulaki z Wilni’(PzW) was not only successful in the financial field, but also changed into the festival of Vilnius alternative music. The money gathered during the event will be spent on a multimedia project for ‘Senevita’ Care Home in Nemenčinė (in Polish: Niemenczyn).

‘Totally, we gathered 1 250 LTL (Lithuanian litas). May be it does not seem stunning, but we are happy that to a small extent we will contribute to make Care Home inhabitants feel appreciated and comfortable’, said Ernest Tylingo, one of the organizers of the event, and Will’N’Ska leader and guitarist, after the concert.

‘It is the second charity event I took part as an organizer. Two years ago, we supported the orphanage in Šalčininkai (in Polish: Soleczniki). This year, we decided to help elderly people. We hope that such Christmas events will become tradition’, added Ewelina Mokrzecka, who is a member of PzW team.

There could be bought retro-reflectors and bages with logos of Will’N’Ska and Pulaki z Wilni. The money gathered will be spent on multimedia projector for people living in ‘Senevita’.

During the party, the variety of Vilnius alternative music could be heard. The guests were: Rob B Colton, Filmik, Ruslan Kostiukov, Berserker, Black Biceps and Will’N’Ska.

The majority of these musicians took part in the work on the album „Muzyczne rodowody. Litwa” (‘Musical lineage. Lithuania.’), which was published a few weeks ago.
