This is awesome... my daughter and her family were evacuated from their home in Fort McMurray this past week and I am happy to say her and the two children are now home in Cape Breton while her partner stayed behind in Edmonton because of work and waiting to see if he can get back into their home in Fort Mac in the coming weeks. We will be purchasing tickets tomorrow for this benefit and I want to thank you for putting this together. You guys are great!!!

While helped to publicize the event, credit should go to Business Cape Breton, the CBRM, and all the other folks doing the organizing.
Michael MacNeil Follow Me
Credit should go to all the performers and volunteers that are donating their time. The CBRM and Business Cape Breton are being paid to make things like this happen in Cape Breton and I will admit that they have performed their jobs very well with organizing this.
