Doors will open at 6:30 for silent auction and the performance will be underway by 7:30.

Mengo was the first hospital in East Africa. It has a long tradition of providing care to sick Ugandans, despite very limited resources and facilities. The ongoing AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa has created a new challenge and responsibility. Outside help is needed to continue existing programs and to develop new services. FOMH(C) directs Canadian support to special needs such as, the dental clinic, TB clinic, AIDS home care service, and nursing education. For decades volunteers from Victoria have been travelling to Mengo to serve in various capacities.

Spilt Milk is a theater company based in Victoria, BC, which has been performing their own unique brand of comedy for the last 10 years. They specialize in interactive comedy performances. Their content policy is to keep the humor above-the-waist and out-of-the-gutter.
