This Monday, The North Peace Community Choir will be doing a fundraiser at Boston Pizza.
From 5 PM to 9 PM, customers who write ‘choir’ at the bottom of their bill can donate 10% of it towards the Choir’s upcoming trip to New York City, to perform at the Carnegie Hall.
They will be singing Handel’s ‘Messiah’ on November 29th – which is on the American Thanksgiving weekend.
It costs about $2,500 for each person to go, and Carol Bell with the Choir says that about 57 people – some with spouses tagging along – are heading there.
The Choir has been fundraising since June for this trip, and Bell estimates they have earned $37,000 so far out of their $50,000 goal – without factoring in expenses such as renting out venues.
They will also be performing to raise funds on November 13th and 14th at the North Peace Cultural Centre before their big performance.
