What an amazing afternoon! Our first fundraiser was held this past Sunday, October 30th, 2011 at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby, BC. A good time was had by all and enough funds were raised to begin music outreach programs in January! We will be teaming up with Burnaby Family Life to provide music programming to young children in a number of their early childhood daycare and preschool centers. The fundraising will also help us initiate our first music therapy project which is currently in development.
The afternoon featured performances by Catrina Centanni and Jay Juatco and Jason and the Diatonics:
We had a great audience out enjoying the afternoon entertainment! Thank you to all those who came out to support the event.
We also had many generous donations from local businesses and individuals. We’d like to extend a big thank you to: Scotiabank, Gowlings Law Firm, Vancity, Easy Park, Frank’s Finishing, BBA Accounting, Pizazz Hair Design, and Joe Ruscitti.
We had many volunteers helping us out through the day! We’d like to thank them for helping with the set-up, clean up, baking, ticket sales, securing donations, photography, musical performances, and more.
Here are a few more photos from the event:
