Acclaimed Bermudian singer/songwriter, Heather Nova, is teaming up with home grown international charity KATKiDs at its popular annual Night Market this year, with the event set to take place this coming Friday [Nov 20].

“Supporters can get a head start on their holiday shopping at the event which takes place on Friday, November 20 from 5.00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at Lower Pier 6 on Front St. in Hamilton,” a spokesperson said.

“The annual exotic and festive evening is organized by KATKiDS to raise funds for children in need in Bermuda, Nepal and southern Africa.

“The low $10 event ticket price goes directly to Bermuda charity, The Eliza DoLittle Society to feed the hungry, many of whom are children.

“In addition, as a special exclusive, Ms. Heather Nova, who has just returned to Bermuda from a European tour, will be present at the event to autograph and sell 100 copies of her recently released 2015 album The Way it Feels, not yet for sale in Bermuda, with $10 of each sale earmarked for The Eliza Dolittle Society.

“In its tenth year, the annual KATKiDS Night Market is an acclaimed fixture on Bermuda’s yearly events calendar.”

Tickets can be bought online in advance via www.bdatix.bm or from Stefanel on Reid St. or purchased at the door from 5.00 p.m. with cash or card.

“This year Nepal has been in the news as well as the hearts and minds of the world following the devastating series of earthquakes and aftershocks in April 2015 causing 8,600 casualties and widespread destruction of infrastructure including an estimated 500,000 homes.

“In May 2015 KATKiDS launched the KATKiDS Nepal Earthquake Appeal and through August 2015 successfully raised just over $62,000 for relief of the victims of the earthquakes providing emergency funds to KATKiDS’s Nepali partner’s non-governmental charitable organizations, Asha Nepal and Gentle Rain Nepal. Gentle Rain Nepal works with at risk children in Kathmandu, Nepal.

“Asha Nepal is a human rights organization dedicated to the social and economic empowerment of women and children affected by sex trafficking in Nepal.”

“It’s a unique opportunity to enjoy music, food and drink in a festive atmosphere and to shop for beautiful and unusual gifts for the upcoming holiday season all with the satisfaction of knowing that 100% of the profits and donations from the event support children in need.” says KATKiDS event Chair, Francesca Cacace.
