There is a great benefit happening this Thursday, please check it out!

The life of a student is difficult, yet rewarding. This year the students
of UC Irvine decided to help make student life easier for the impoverished
children of Iraq with the creation of the Baghdad School Project. The
Project buys, packs, and ships, school supplies to Iraqi school children.
On April 19th, 2007, the School of Social Sciences Dean’s Ambassadors
Council and KUCI present UCIndie, a benefit concert for the student-run
Baghdad School Project.

The concert will feature performances by local bands:

Northern, Great Glass Elevator, Down for the Count, Transit Studio, and
Blue Lion Project.

The event will also include a charity raffle for an ipod, a short
presentation and refreshments available for purchase.

Tickets are $6 pre-sale and can be purchased at UC Irvine on Ring Road in
front of the Social Science Plaza on April 10, 11, 16 and 17 from 11 to
3pm, as well as by email request to shorgan@uci.edu. Checks should be made
out to UC Regents and sent to:
UC Irvine School of Social Sciences
Social Science Plaza 2237
Attn: Baghdad School Project
Irvine, CA 92697
Tickets are general admission and can be purchased pre-sale or at the door.
The project is currently accepting cash donations, donations of prizes
for the charity raffle, as well as donations of school supplies,
· Blunt-end scissors
· 12-inch rulers with metric markings
· New pencils with erasers
· Small pencil sharpeners
· Large erasers

The Baghdad School Project and UCIndie provide an opportunity for student
and the community to listen to good music while supporting a good cause
and giving the gift of education to the children of a war-torn region.
