PUSH: PLAY-A benefit gig for Sonia Akow from Push Promotions
You probably know Sonia through her sending you music over the past 10 or 12 years. Sonia runs Push Promotions – and is also a DJ, one half of SOTO alongside her partner Toby – but Sonia, one of the loveliest people in the music industry, now needs your help.
Sonia has a form of Leukemia – a type of cancer of the blood – and needs a stem cell transplant. She’s also undergoing chemotherapy. We have been sending emails and Facebook messages around asking for people to sign up to be a stem cell donor – more information is below.
In an attempt to publicise Sonia’s plight, and raise some funds as she battles this disease, we are organising a benefit gig in London at the end of March – and we need your help. A number of top DJs have already donated their time to play for free at the gig – to be held at The Egg in Kings Cross, London on Thursday 28th March.
The night will run from 10pm-6am, and we hope to raise a significant amount of money for Sonia – as well as awareness about her condition.
Are you able to help? Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you are not in the UK, you can still help by reading bellow and registering to be a donor.
For more information on how to become a donor please email: email@example.com and he will send you links on how to sign up.
Thank you in advance for your help.
