Grandmothers for Africa is looking to recruit some singers for a good cause.
Carolling for a Cause, in fact.
The aid organization is looking for groups of singers for their new fundraiser. In partnership with the Downtown Business Association to fill the downtown with groups of carollers — 3 or 4 or more than 20 — on Nov. 23 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The audience will move from group to group and purchase buttons to vote for their favourite. The evening will end with all the participants coming to Nanaimo Square for a final song and tree lighting.
The funds raised will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation to assist African Grandmothers raising a generation of children orphaned by AIDS, as well as the Breakfast Learning Club that feeds hungry children in three Penticton schools.
If you are a member of a choir or you have a group of friends or coworkers who would be willing to belt out Christmas songs loud and proud? Come join the fun, get into the Christmas spirit and help give back during the holidays.!
Since the singers are stationary and the audience moves repeating songs is totally possible.
Registration forms, available from Judi Ritcey at firstname.lastname@example.org, will answer all your concerns and questions.
