The TiliPamodzi Dinner is an annual fundraising formal dinner that brings together ZANE’s partners, friends & the ZANE community . The ZANE community showed up in huge support from states such as Maine, New York & of course ZANE’s home base Massachusetts.

A rousing rendition of Zambia’s national anthem led by songbird Mrs. Anniya Mvula-Lawrence of Beyond Blue fame opened the night. Entertainment of the night included another song by Mrs. Lawrence, a ‘Togetherness’ song by Mr. Faith Kaliba, and an African interpretative dance by Zambian contemporary dancer, Ms. Violet Kabaso.
