An all day event set to be held at Pisco Bar KL on 9 December will help raise proceeds for the Stepping Stones Living Centre hostel for boys based in Taman Seputeh Kuala Lumpur. "A Vicious Extravaganza" organised by locally based DJ Jonathan Charles aka Jonny Vicious will feature the creme de la creme of KL’s best electronic DJs and promoters.
Pisco Bar's music director and organiser, Jonathan said "I've been heading to this orphanage to spread some joy over the last 3 years, and I've been wanting to help them so much as no child deserves to sleep on a floor with almost no roof above their heads. The kids deserve a better place for them to be productive so we can motivate them to want to be something as they grow older. The situation they are in right now gives them no chance at bettering themselves and I believe it is our social responsibility to help"
The Charity event which starts at 3pm will feature more than 50 DJs from the likes of Art xtreme Media, Kyo KL, Dictatorship, Connected, Ohrwurm, The Return of Bliss, Pisco Bar, Jiro, Daydream, The W Kuala Lumpur, Wonderwomen, Under 9, Iron Fairies, Soul De Anima and Mile High Sounds will be playing a diverse range of music across two distinct areas over the course of 12 hours.
All the cover charge, a percentage of proceeds from the bar and any cash raised during various activity throughout the day will go toward this charity to sponsor the refurbishment and provide a list of items needed at both the living center and boys dormitory. Jonny and his team will also create an outline of what the children could pursue as a career once done with school - age 15 and above.
The home was set up by Pastor Johnson almost 20 years ago with public funds and his own blood and sweat and houses 45 children ranging from 2-17 years of age where most have come abusive homes or have been abandoned by their family as they can not afford to raise them. "The kids deserve a better place for them to be productive so we can motivate them to want to be something as they grow older. The situation they are in right now gives them no chance to bettering themselves and I believe it is our social responsibility to help" said Jonathan
Items needed at the Boys Dormitory include Bunk Beds, New mattresses, Sheets, pillows, blankets, Paint, Material for a new ceiling, Furniture for study/living area, Bathroom Fixtures, Doors, Storage units for clothes and Hygiene items i.e soap, shampoo, toothpaste, brushes and for the living centre, Bookshelves, Clothes (one pair of new jeans and 2 new t-shirts each), restoring the common area (paint, clean up), paying off excess bills, educational Materials, books, stationery and a computer.
