Jason Hartman brings Africa to Monaco - again

Jason Hartman
Former Idols winner Jason Hartman will be jetting off to Monaco over the weekend to prepare for an exclusive charity performance to raise funds for Conservation Guardians, a global environmental trust on which he is a board member.  Conservation Guardians houses a number of NGOs including the International Anti Poaching Foundation and Jason’s own charity, Men Of Trees. The objective of the event is not only to raise awareness around pertinent environmental issues around the globe, but also an appeal for donations to assist in driving ways to find solutions to these issues, especially across the African continent. The event, which includes a traditional African braai, a premium auction and a live show by Jason and his band, will take place at the Monaco yacht club on Thursday 19 April 2012 and seats come at a premium of 400 Euros a head. The star studded event will be attended by Quincy Jones, Chris Tucker (who is also the Master of Ceremonies for the evening), Will I Am, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Gjocovic as well as many other high profile international celebrities. “This is the first event of many and we hope to take it around the world to raise a considerable amount of money for Conservation Guardians, where every cent will be invested in combating poaching and developing communities in order to reduce their impact on the environment,” said Jason Hartman, who heads up Men of Trees and is the celebrity ambassador of the International Anti Poaching Foundation. Jason shot to fame as the controversial joint winner of South Africa Idols in 2009. His album On The Run had several hits and he is currently working on new material for a release during the course of 2012. Jason wrote on his Facebook page: "Looking forward to our first major international concert for Conservation Guardians in Monaco on 19 April! Hello Magazine is covering the event as well as German television!Hopefully we get the footage back home!"
