It’s time again to sing holiday tunes and help stop violence against women!

A jazz-hands moment from last year’s event!

The holiday season is upon us, and with all the snow this year it really IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And once again, here’s  your opportunity to sing carols and support a great cause. Yes, it’s my annual Holiday Sing-Along and Fundraiser for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter!

I’m so grateful to the many of you who make a point of joining me for a little while each year, and hope you can come out again – or for the first time!

As most of you know, each year VRRWS helps hundreds of women and their children who are escaping violence by offering them a safe haven and many kinds of assistance.

I volunteer for this them in a fundraising capacity, participating regularly in their street fundraising event and gathering contributions from the community to help keep the shelter operating. I started the “Musical Holiday Version” of this event in 2005, and it’s always a fun and extra-festive afternoon. Especially if you’re going to be in the downtown area doing some holiday shopping, I hope you can drop by and lend your voice for a little while. Songbooks provided!

DAY: Saturday, December 17

TIME: I should be on the street from 10:15 to 1:30 and 2 to 4 (Note our absence for a lunch break from 1:30 to 2!)

LOCATION: Georgia and Granville (Either in front of The Bay or London Drugs – look for our yellow placards!)

It’s lots of fun for a great cause – and the more, the merrier. So feel free to pass this message along to friends, family, co-workers etc.

I hope to see you there!
