Sing for Care 2017
Thank you so much for all the support you showed in making Sing for Care 2017 a success. We were thrilled to raise $12,758 at the Sunday evening concert. Adding some donations that came in later we were able to write a cheque to the Bliss Foundation for over $13,000, bringing us to within striking distance of $150,000 over the years that we have been holding this benefit.
We are grateful to you, our wonderful audience, and to Holy Heart Alumnae Choir, Let's Make a Choir 2017, and the Atlantic BoyChoir for being part of the event this year.
“Funds raised from Les Ms. and Friends Sing for Care are in support of the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation’s Patient and Family Support Fund which supports financially challenged cancer patients who require assistance with treatment-related expenses such as travel, meals, accommodations and the purchase of prostheses. From 2008-2013, the Foundation disbursed over $684,200 to 2,700 cancer patients and their families in Newfoundland and Labrador.
It’s because of generous donors such as Les Ms that we are able to provide this level of support.
The Cancer Care Foundation is grateful to be associated with such a wonderful group who does so much for the community.”
Thank you so much to everyone who made Sing for Care in Clarenville such a success. Les Ms. and Friends were able to raise $3000 for the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation Patient and Family Support Fund.
From a rehearsal that ran like clockwork, to an evening arrival where our wonderful (and very well dressed) Chamber Choir men brought in another 100 chairs, to a performance with voices of such sweetness they filled your heart with uncontainable joy. The music selected spoke of love, hope and perseverance. The generosity and attentiveness of our audience pushed us all to perform at our best. Particular thanks to the 4 music educators without whom this would not have been a reality.
