Wadeng Wings of Hope Benefit
Ghettosocks, Something Good, The Belle Comedians, Kuato, The Light Brights, Dance Movie and Kelly Sloan. With a line-up as heavy as this one, you know the cause has to be a worthy one. Stephanie Gill first heard of the Wadeng Wings of Hope in an ethics class at Saint Mary's and was immediately hooked. The charity's main mission is education for children in Sudan. Its founder, Jacob Deng, is one of the lost boys of Sudan and a soon-to-be SMU graduate. "He had to flee his country when he was seven because most of his family was killed, I just couldn't imagine someone going through that." Gill and her friend, fellow SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) member, Kaitlyn Touesnard had no problems rallying the support of local musicians and they've even got funny man Mark Little as the evening's MC.
