Penticton Christmas concert benefits the needy

Thanks to sponsorship from the local business community, all the ticket sales from a Christmas concert were able to benefit the needy.

The recent Tom Jackson concert, T’was in the Moon of Wintertime, which took place in December, did more than please the ears of the 250 audience members.

While they got to listen to many familiar and new renditions of Christmas favourites, the $6,150 collected in ticket sales was shared among three charitable organizations: the Penticton Salvation Army Food Bank, the Soupateria and the Christmas and Winter Relief Association, a non-profit association founded in 1988 by Tom Jackson with a mandate to raise money for community service and charitable organizations.
