Homeless Charity Event debuts at infa
In the occasion of this year's infa at the exhibition grounds in Hannover, the project "DIE!!! Weihnachtsfeier für Wohnungslose und Bedürftige" (Christmas party for homeless and needy people) will be presented for the first time as part of the Christmas theme world. The special: Every euro that is turned over at the stand goes 100 percent to the charitable project.17 Sep 2023
infa project manager Klaudia Kohl: "infa, with its great shopping variety and high visitor numbers, provides a perfect setting for the project. And what better hall for a Homeless Charity Event than Christmas? In any case, we are very pleased to support this great campaign."
One of the highlights is sure to be the unplugged performance by members of the band "Fury in the Slaughterhouse" on Sunday, Oct. 15, at 3 p.m.
Thorsten Wingenfelder, Christof Stein-Schneider and Christian Decker will deliver an exclusive unplugged showcase, bringing the popular Fury feeling to the exhibition hall.
Fury in the Slaughterhouse are patrons of the project and will not only inspire musically. They have picked out rarities from their band archive for this day, which can be purchased by visitors for a good cause. So there will be signed vinyl albums, books and posters. And of course the Christmas benefit CD sampler co-organized by Christof Stein-Schneider.
However, the activities at the stand will already start on the first infa day.
On October 14, quick-draw artist Lucy Hobrecht will be on hand to capture guests on paper. In addition, the Hanoverian comedian Thommi Baake will present a selection of classic Super 8 films, which he will comment on humorously.
On October 16 and 17, Pete the Beat will be a guest. He is known, among other things, from the TV series Spotlight, in which he plays the beatboxing janitor.
His deceptively genuine musical rendition of drums AND bass, the incredible variety of musical styles and his tremendous virtuosity without a loop station and without technical showmanship guarantees definite excitement.
On October 17, Cody Stone will be a guest at the booth in the Christmas. He has already enchanted an audience of millions with his TV series (including Magic Attack on Super RTL and Disney Channel), as well as with his live shows in Las Vegas and New York. Cody Stone proves with incredible dexterity and the art of a master magician that it is not only technique that enchants the audience. Entertaining and captivating, he manages the balancing act between state-of-the-art technology and "analog" magic effects.
On 18 and 19.10. There will be unusual make-up activities at the stand, and also the Grinch for very special Christmas photos and there will be a Christmas tasting and a wheel of fortune with great prizes.
On 20.10. photos with Christmas accessories can be taken in front of the photo box, which will be printed directly on site. In addition, cloth bags can be printed with the "Die!!! Weihnachtsfeier" logo can be printed. In the afternoon, there will be a reading with the author duo Wolfram Hänel and Ulrike Gerold. The reading will be accompanied by guitarist Arndt Schulz.
On 21.10. Fury guitarist Christof Stein-Schneider is again at the booth of "Die!!! Weihnachtsfeier". At 12 noon he will give guitar lessons and practice one or two Fury songs with interested visitors. For this, visitors who have purchased the latest Fury-HOPE box should bring the Fury Songbook.
On October 21 and 22, pop-art artist Andora will be a guest. He will be painting wooden wine boxes, which can also be purchased directly at the booth for the good cause.
And on Oct. 22, starting at 2 p.m., Anca & Ossy will be on hand to sing "96 - Alte Liebe," among other songs. Ossy Pfeiffer will also read from his 2024. Individual chapters are numbered and hand-signed as printouts and can also be purchased for a good cause.
All donations will go directly to the needy guests of the "Die!!! Weihnachtsfeier", which will take place this year on 17.12. in the Hannover Congress Centrum.
In addition to the Christmas party for about 700 adults, after the Corona break, there will finally be another "Die!!! Weihnachtsfeier" for needy children, to which up to 450 small guests are expected and for which there will be a colorful supporting program, gift bags and large and small surprises - in short: a little Christmas happiness.
