Wilkinson-St. David's Sponsorship Group Night Out

Thank you,  Wilkinson school community, for all of your very generous support and commitment to this cause. So far, we have raised over $18,000 to bring a refugee family to our community.  We're hopeful that in Spring 2017 we may see the results of our hard work pay off. In the meantime, we have one last fundraising event planned to try to reach our goal of $23,500 in order to receive a matching grant approved by the Anglican Diocese of Canada. 
What: An evening of live music - all proceeds going to the Wilkinson-St. David's Refugee Sponsorship Group
When: Saturday, June 18, 2016, 8:30 pm
Where: The Eton House, 710 Danforth Avenue
Who: Local east end band TRAINWRECK
Cost:  $15 in advance online or $20 at the door, if there are any tickets left!!!

TRAINWRECK plays everything from Elvis (Presley) to Elvis (Costello), from ABBA to ZAPPA, aiming to delight and surprise with every song. A guaranteed ‘wrecking’ good time! Hope to see you there!  For more information, check out our website.
