For the second year running, Football For A Cause (#FFAC2014), an annual fund raiser is set to bring together a fine blend of young Nigerian celebrities, artistes, On-air-personalities and comedians with the goal of raising funds to support education for the less privileged children in Nigeria.
The novelty match is scheduled to hold on Sunday, October 12th, 2014, where Nigerian entertainment icons such as Mr Raw, May D, Lynxxx, Timi Dakolo, Seyi Law, Senator, Elenu, Bez, Nedu, DJ Neptune amongst others will play against the All-Star Team of the TwitPremier League at the University of Lagos Sports Centre by 3pm.
This blend of football, entertainment and philanthropy is another project of the StayInSchoolng Initiative which hopes to raise money to place 400 disadvantaged children in school with the aim of bridging the evident gap in the country’s education sector. StayInSchoolng currently supports 200 children across 8 primary schools and recently held a fundraiser to provide best graduating students under the SiSNG umbrella secondary school scholarships.
Tickets for the event are available for N1, 000 and N5, 000 at www.naijaticketshop.com, Ozone cinemas, Genesis Deluxe Cinemas and Silverbird Galleria. Further details on the match and the project can be found on www.stayinschoolng.org, twitter – @stayinschoolng and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/StayInSchoolng-initiative/233070080154044?ref=hl.
