More than $500 was raised for MWB at the event. These proceeds will help us fund our community project: a full album featuring big artists collaborating with individuals who have a disability.
The benefit was spearheaded by Humber music instructor Alex Dean and by music student Ashley Kurkjian, who was inspired to help MWB after watching the “Making A Difference Holiday Special” on Global News.
Here are a few words about the event from Ashley, Alex and our executive director, Adrian Moody:
We want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket for the event. A special thank you goes out to Alex Dean and Ashley Kurkjian for making it all happen, and to 80 Gladstone for allowing us to use their space for the benefit. Also, thank you to the wonderful musicians who volunteered their time and showcased their incredible talent – especially those who had to rush to their next event later that night!
Lastly, big thanks goes out to the Spahn-Vieira family, who spoke at the event and continue to inspire us.
