Join Suncoast Hospice in celebrating the 8th Annual JABULA! Gospel Fest. There will be gospel music and fellowship, all to raise awareness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa and acknowledge the efforts of our sister hospice, in Soweto, South Africa. Suncoast Hospice calls this special evening JABULA! which is a Swahili word for Rejoice. All proceeds from the free-will offering will help support the Hospice of Witwatersrand in Soweto, South Africa, where HIV/AIDS is a major health issue.
