action medeor e.V. Benefit Concert at the Tonhalle

Anke Engelke for action medeor e.V.

I'm sometimes asked how you can be involved in local charities. On November 28 there's a chance to enjoy a wonderful concert with the Düsseldorfer Symphony Orchestra and be involved in a city project in aid of the fight against malaria. 

Anke Engelke is one of Germany's most loved comediennes, she is the German voice of Marge Simpson and was one of the three German personalities chosen to also present the Eurovision Song Contest here in Düsseldorf in May. 

For some time now she has been ambassador for action medeor e.V., an non-profit organisation that provides medical supplies to the various spots of the world in much need of such support.  
The concert at the beautiful Tonhalle on November 28 2011 is in aid of the project Düsseldorf gegen Malaria.
Please support this project. Just one euro can provide the treatment for child with malaria.
Every year about one million people die of malaria.
85% are children under the age of 5.
If you can, do join us for the concert, where we have been told a few surprises await us. TheDüsseldorf Symphony Orchestra will be playing something light and 'jazzy' for the first time, and Anke Engelke has chosen to sing!
Tickets are just €20, plus booking fee, available online here
