Helping the needy

HELPING the Fijian community is something that the International Jazz & Blues Festival organisers hold deeply in their hearts.

One of the main objectives of the festival is to bring hope to the people of Fiji through music and charity work.

International Jazz & Blues Festival director Billy TK Jr said their focus this year was assisting the Hilton Foundation and an MOU was signed this week where a percentage of the ticket sales would be given to the foundation.

"In 2012, we donated some funds to the Prime Minister's flood appeal and we have done other charity work in New Zealand too during the festival," TK Jr said.

"It's a great cause to help the children at the Hilton organisation and I can personally relate to it as I have a disabled son."

He said they were happy to sign an agreement with the organisation and they hoped to help local communities more in the future.

"People can expect great jazz and blues music from international and local artists this weekend."

The venues for the International Jazz & Blues Festival this year are the Holiday Inn, Royal Suva Yacht Club and O'Reilly's Bar.

The Fiji Times is the official print media partner of the festival.
