PAN DRAGONS TO HOLD FUNDRAISER SUNDAY

Nov. 20, 2001 – The Love City Pan Dragons and the Baby Dragons Youth Steel Orchestra want to go to Trinidad's Carnival in February so they're running a lollapalooza of a fundraiser on Nov. 25.
The group has signed on some of the region's top calypsonians for a 6 p.m. performance at the Westin Resort. Elaine Penn, who is helping to organize the event, said it will be held at the beachfront area or, if it rains, in the ballroom.
The event features Singing Sandra and Black Satin from Trinidad, De Hunter from Dominica and King Whadablee and Calypso Sis from St. Thomas. Additionally, Imaginations Brass, the Pan Dragons and Charlotte Amalie High School Shinning Stars will perform. Irvin "Brownie" Browne will serve as the emcee.
"It's going to be a great show," Penn promised.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children under age 12 pay $8. They are available at Connections, Courtesy Car Rental, Mooie's Bar, and St. John Drug Center in St. John as well as Percy's Bus Stop and International Records in St. Thomas. Additionally, all Pan Dragon parents have tickets for sale.
Penn said that the Pan Dragons need to raise about $25,000 to fund expenses for about 40 of the youthful players who want to make the trip to Trinidad. She said the trip is educational so the youths can see professional pan players at work.
The event also includes a raffle for a weekend stay at a Westin Resort villa, located across the street from the hotel. Transportation from the Cruz Bay ferry dock will be available.
