Following the success of last year’s ‘Positive Influence’ charity event on September 10th 2012 at Brixton Jamm, rapper Ragz-CV & comedian Junior Booker returned with an even bigger night!
The event was held at the legendary Dogstar in Brixton on Thursday September 26th 2013. With 200 people in attendance, including the Lambeth Mayor Mark Bennett, John Meech of the ‘Alzheimer’s Society’ and an abundance of amazing acts this event was a memorable and inspiring evening. The duo raised £301.67 on the night, which is an amazing achievement!
Catching up with Ragz-CV after the show he said: ‘I’m really happy! Last year we made an amazing £800 for the charity because we charged £5 on the door but this year me and Junior decided to make it a free event, with all donations going to the charity! This time was more about raising awareness and celebrating an amazing year for myself & Junior, which we definitely achieved.’ These two young men are definitely great role models for the community and very talented in there respected fields.
With Ragz-CV recently finding out he has been nominated for a Beffta Award, his 3rd award nomination in a year, and now raising over £4,000 for the ‘Alzheimer’s Society’ charity in total since his E.P ‘Paying Homage to the King’ came out, this young man is getting his message out there.
We look forward to the next ‘Positive Influence’ event, which will hopefully take place in 2014!
