      BFU-USA Annual Cultural Performance, Fundraiser, & Gala Night

      Every year, Bui Family Union USA organizes a convention to celebrate the cultural heritage of the Bui people originally from the Northwest regions of the Cameroons. These conventions are two-fold: Friday evening devoted solely to cultural performances and some fundraising, and Saturday - a fundraising gala. The fundraising component is to raise substantial aid for the people Bui Division who have been horribly affected by the ongoing military crackdown and unchecked brutality of Anglophone Cameroonians by the French-backed dictator who has been ruling Cameroon for more than 35 years. This occasion is not a typical fundraiser!  On Friday: members of this organization use this annual event to showcase their cultural heritage in dance, song, exotic cuisines from Cameroon. Cultural performances like the Manjong, the Njang, the Kikum, and Ntoh Masked Dances, as well as the celebration of young talent within the group, etc. are presented.  A spectacular show is planned this year at the Hilton by the airport. An opportunity for everyone around Minnesota and Wisconsin to come and visit Bui Division in Cameroon without leaving the safety of the US! Saturday is devoted to the grand gala! A red carpet event that is featuring a DJ on the turntable to dish out soul searching music! Come ready to surprised by 2 visiting artists who will sing live for your listening and dancing pleasure!
