The GEANCO Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving health conditions in Africa, held its second annual Health and Hope for Africa concert. Co-founder Dr. Godwin Onyema and his family, along with chairman Richard Dent, hosted more than 200 guests for dinner at the Museum of Science and Industry (5700 S. Lake Shore). Performances by female African dance group Ayodele and violinist Lee England Jr. kept guests entertained well into the evening, which raised more than $75,000 for the development of Augustine Memorial Hospital in Nigeria to provide medical care for the poor and medical training for doctors, nurses and students.
