Winter fundraiser for PARC with Anna and Manger League
December 18, 2018 /6:00 pm 8:00 pm
$15 (gen. admission) / $10 (students & arts workers)
You can buy advance tickets here:
We invite you to join us for an evening of seasonal music and other gems in support of the music program at Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre (PARC). We also encourage donations of lightly used and/or new winter clothing items (scroll down for more info). 100% of the musicians proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to PARC.
PARC is the primary service and community hub for a large population of people living in south Parkdale recovering from mental illness and/or an addiction along with precarious shelter, food insecurity and social isolation.
The music program “offers an opportunity for new and experienced musicians to express themselves creatively and emotionally, connect with others, develop their craft, and entertain audiences. The Music Program is a means for members to engage with the arts in a meaningful way and can potentially lead into employment opportunities. For many people, music is an escape, but for our members’ music is part of a journey involving healing, growth, self-determination and empowerment”.
With music by:
MANGER LEAGUE (6:30 PM)
