Jim interview on CBC
Jim's Interview 6:540:00/6:54
Our December 18 online benefit concert in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank was a tremendous success. 150 tickets sold, and many donations directly to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Close to $4000 was raised through this concert and donations. It attracted media interest by way of CBC Metro Morning on December 14, Accessibility Media on December 16, and CFRB on December 19. And it was seen by some people in Europe on Sunday afternoon, December 21! Thank you for your encouragement and support of such a worthy cause, particularly at this time of year and especially this year!
Happy Holidays and stay safe.
