On Monday night, the North Peace Community choir hosted a fundraiser at Boston Pizza for their upcoming trip to New York City to perform Handel’s “Messiah” at Carnegie Hall.

Choir member Evelyn Sim said that Boston Pizza was incredibly busy on Monday night with supporters, calling it a ‘great success.’

Management donated 10% of each bill that was marked with ‘choir’ on the bottom, written by customers. With that amount, and the amount gift basket draws, plus donations, just under $800 was earned.

Starting with funds raised at a variety of events through the summer, plus many donations, the total raised for the Carnegie Hall trip is just over $34,548 – over two-thirds of the goal of $50,000.

Before performing at Carnegie Hall on November 29th, the choir will be hosting two final performances on November 13th and 14th at the North Peace Cultural Centre.

The fundraising is helping to cover each person’s program fee of $850, and does not cover travel expenses or accommodation.
