On Wednesday, November 27th, from 6:00pm Dixon Hall hosted our annual fundraising gala in support of our Music School, Music For Life at Daniels Spectrum. The evening was a wonderful celebration of the importance of music and the arts, and an opportunity to recognize the many achievements of our students while enjoying a delicious meal and great conversations. This year's event was another milestone - our final while the Music School is still located at in the basement of 58 Sumach St., as we prepare to move into the new youth centre.
We're thrilled to share that our fundraising total for the evening is $290,000, our most successful gala to date, thanks to the incredible generosity of our corporate and community partners, and our guests. Because of you, we'll be able to ensure access to music education to young people in Regent Park and surrounding neighbourhoods, and can continue serving 320 students every week, providing 12,500 lessons every year. We are so grateful for your generosity, and for your belief in the power of music.
Thank you to the mix of corporate partners, donors, and guests who came together to make this a night to remember. We are humbled, grateful, and awed by the power of community when we come together.
