Thank you to everyone who came out to our Variety Show on October 15. Special thanks to Trevor Finlay, Chad Wolfe and his entertainers, the Tine Ruffaro Marimba Band and Teri Loretto for sharing your time and talent. We would also like to thank our volunteers and everyone who donated money, door prizes and silent auction items. A total of $4,200 will be sent to Plan Canada which becomes $25,200 with matching by the Global Sanitation Fund. This completes our share of the funding for a sanitation project in Tanzania that will provide clean water and healthy living for many in rural communities. We are grateful to everyone involved.
Here is the link to the photos from the Variety Show. Thank you to Barry and Irene McIntyre for taking them.
For those unable to attend the show but wishing to make a donation, you can do so directly to Plan Canada at the link below. The 5:1 matching of your donation will still apply.
Don’t miss out! Tickets are on sale and they’re going fast.
It’s that time of the year again and we are excited to announce the lineup for our 7th annual show. This year, Trevor Finlay will be taking time from performing in his own shows and touring with 80s pop icon, Tiffany, to join us. In addition, we will have Chad Wolfe from the Chad Wolfe Studio of Music and Dance and the Tine Ruffaro Marimba Band. They are all guaranteed to having you bouncing in your seats.
The funds raised from this show will put the finishing touches on Plan Canada’s Sanitation Project in Tanzania. We’re excited about that.
There will be a silent auction, door prizes and a 50/50 draw and it’s all for just $20. More details are available at http://www.keeponclimbing.com/events-2/7th-annual-education-africa-variety-show-october-15-2017/.
See you there!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 9th Annual Keep On Climbing Golf Tournament for Wounded Warriors. It was a great day! $4,100 was raised! We will make a small donation to local service dog trainers, Canadian Canine, and the remainder will go to Wounded Warriors Canada. Since 2008, with the help of all the people involved in our projects and matching of funds by the federal government in some cases, our events for various charities have raised a little over $194,000.
None of this would be possible without the participation of the golfers, volunteers, sponsors, donors and those who were with us in spirit. We are profoundly grateful for the support.
