On December 18, 2018, I was excited to receive a grant donation in the amount of $5,000.00 from the George Lunan Foundation.
Anthony and I have wanted to create an outreach program for kids in under-served areas. We want to bring our program to kids who would not normally be able to afford it. We will structure it the same way Voices Rock Canada has been operating, over a 6-8 week period, culminating in a performance. This is something I’ve wanted to create since the inception of VRC and that dream is now on its way to becoming a reality! Thank you to Mary Krause for helping write the proposal and Sonia Brown (VRC Ensemble) for going to bat for us at the Board level. We are eternally grateful.
Voices Rock Canada is a registered charity, #79800 0097 RR0001.
Registration/Events/Ticket Sales cover approximately 75% of our costs. We appreciate every donation we receive and would sincerely like to thank the following people and organizations for their kindness.
