YOU DID IT! You came to share a wonderful evening with us all and made our hearts sing. The rafters of Holy Heart Theatre were humming with the energy. Sing for Care was awesome, in the truest sense of the word. 

Thank you to Celeste, Holy Heart of Mary Alumnae Choir r and Let's Make a Choir 2018 for their exuberant performances. Thank you to Sonya Gosse and Anna Mercer for the thrilling Flower Duet! 

Thank you to Lisa Bokelmann Sells & Sandra Pope for the collaborations that took our pieces to the next level. 

Thank you to the wonderful Dr. Valerie Long, whose vision guides us. 

Thank you to the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation and The Telegram and Quikprint Services Ltd. for their unflagging support. And of course, all of our volunteers. (You too Jennifer.) 

Thank you to all of YOU, who came to hear us! Because of you, giving over $7000 at this concert, Sing for Care has now raised over $155,000 dollars for the Patient and Family Support Fund! Be very proud of yourselves. You give us purpose.

LES MS. IS GOING TO CARNEGIE HALL!!!!!!
