Tifton - - Some ABAC students are trying to raise $50,000 for a good cause.

The political science club and Baptist collegiate ministries will hold the 2007 Kenya Rockfest this weekend.

It's a concert to raise funds for 3 orphanages in the country and to help send 15 students to Africa to help.  

"We want to provide food and shelter for the orphanages of the Kariba community, one of the 5th largest slums in the world," says Terry McStott of ABAC.

Big Boy Productions will also hold a car show to help out.

The event will be held at the American Legion fairgrounds in Tifton Saturday from noon until 10 pm.
