Endless Gratitude to…well…EVERYONE!!!

Endless gratitude to our sponsors and donors for donating over $6,000 of goods and easily over $10,000 in services.  Kudos to community for helping us to further generate over $700 to pay our performers and over $1,700.00 to gift the Ottawa Sexual Assault Support Centre’s Women and War Program.  Last but not least, an abundance of thanks to all of our incredible artists, performers, volunteers and CHER2012 committee members….there are so many…it warrants a whole other blog post!
