Larchfeld and Gulf for Good will be holding the second of its popular classical music

Larchfeld Children's Home in Tanzania at the
Waldorf Astoria on the Palm.
The charity evening - approved by the Islamic
Affairs and Charitable Affairs department -

the China Red Trio and will then be followed by
a set-course dinner.
The China Red Trio features China’s best
musicians – Concert Pianist Xi You performing
on The King Edward Steinway, internationally
renowned Violinist Min Yang and the Principal
Cellist of the China Philharmonic Orchestra
Zheng Yue Guan.
An auction and rafﬂe later on in the evening
will also be held in hopes to raise funds for
the Larchfeld Children’s Home which is a Gulf
for Good-sponsored project being built for
kids left behind by their parents, either due to
disease or death.
The Home was set up by a group of Tanzanian
and Dubai-based individuals with links to the country. It acquired more than 11 acres
in 2011 at Mkuranga - some 60 kilometres
south of the capital, Dar-es-Salaam - on
which to build the orphanage and school, in
addition to a kitchen-garden.
The frst phase of the project has been
completed and is now home to some 60
children. A further fve phases are to be built
on the site, which will welcome a total of 300
“I have fond memories of growing up in
Tanzania and as a gesture of giving back, I’m
determined to make Larchfeld Children’s Home a place where
children, who are not so
fortunate, will have the
chance to grow up in a safe
and happy environment,"
said Dubai-based Larchfeld
Co-Founder and Gulf for
Good Board Member, James
“I would urge anyone who
appreciates a high calibre of
music performance to join
us for an evening of fabulous entertainment,
great food and the chance to win big in the
auction and rafﬂe, as their participation will
go towards making a better life for nearly 300
children, who would otherwise have been
abandoned,” added Berry.
