To All Who Supported “NOW IS THE TIME – END POVERTY” with The Bells of Baddeck on July 8!
Our benefit performance contributed $5,761.18 to United Way’s Child Poverty Programs.
“I am a strong believer in the effectiveness of the performing arts to make positive impact, and you all helped this to happen. I appreciate it deeply. I also applaud those of you who are doing this work all of the time – it is hard and important work. You are heroes, to be sure!”
– Lorna MacDonald, creator and librettist of The Bells of Baddeck
“On behalf of United Way Cape Breton and programs that we fund, thank you all so very much for all your hard work. This was a very successful collaboration as it not only raised almost $6,000, but we created even more awareness about the situation of child poverty.
It was a pleasure working with you Lorna, as you used a very unique method of communicating the work being done across Cape Breton. The show itself was an added benefit, providing quality entertainment with very talented cast and musicians, which made it all the more rewarding for those who chose to donate to our cause.”
– Lynne McCarron, Executive Director, United Way Cape Breton
Warmest thanks to the co-sponsors of the initiative: Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, Belmac, Big Spruce Brewing, Bell Buoy Restaurant and Cape Breton Post Advertising.
May the children of Cape Breton be strengthened by this small contribution toward a very large problem.
