Help Shakespeare In Action win $10,000

Shakespeare In Action is a theatre group that will be moving to Weston later this year. Here’s their latest fundraising promotion that will help them raise more funds for programs in Weston.

Help Us Win $10,000
with CanadaHelps

As the school year wraps up, we are turning our attention to building our new home in Weston. We’ve already raised over $17,000 with your support.

At the end of 2018, Shakespeare in Action is moving to a permanent studio theatre home in the Artscape Weston Common where we can make a difference by providing professional theatre to the community and theatre-training for youth.

Every dollar donated until June 30th enters us in for a chance to win $10,000 with CanadaHelps. 

Making a charitable donation to Shakespeare in Action will go towards creating an exciting and engaging season of theatre for the Weston community. Your gift will fund the School for Creativity and Storytelling for youth who may otherwise not have access to performance training. Finally, we hope to present summer Shakespeare in Little Avenue Memorial Park and bring Northwest Toronto’s families together in the heart of the community.

We need your support to ensure the success of our first year in our new neighbourhood. 

Donating $25 = 25 chances to win
Donating $100 = 100 chances to win
Donating $200 = 200 chances to win!

Remembrance ceremony this Sunday

Westminster United Church will be having a Remembrance Day ceremony this Sunday at 1 pm at the cenotaph in Little Avenue Park.

In the press release, Rev. Douglas Varey says,

Remembrance Day season this year is a time to honour the over 150 Canadian personnel have died in Afghanistan.  Master Cpl. Byron Greff was killed there just last week.  We stand in solidarity with Forces personnel who are currently fulfilling their responsibilities in a difficult and dangerous situation.

In our prayers we will also express our concern and support for service personnel who are returning to Canada with physical, mental and psychological challenges.  Such suffering is having a profound effect on their lives and on their families.”
