CHRISTMAS IN THE AIR, Tuesday, December 12th, 7 – 8pm. Tupper Auditorium (419 E 24th).

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

On Tuesday, Dec 12th, 7pm Charles Tupper Auditorium (419 E 24th) will be alive with the sounds of the season as the VCS choirs along with audience for the Vancouver Food Bank. This is the third CHRISTMAS IN THE AIR to benefit the GVFB.

VCS choirs will provide family entertainment and also lead the audience in an hour long program of some rousing seasonal music. Invite your family, friends and neighbours.

Join the Fun!! The enthusiastic and spirited sound of the VCS choirs is the heart of this event but it’s a fantastic opportunity for the public to join in on many songs in this high energy show. For the Hillcrest neighbourhood especially, this is a fantastic way to reach out and support a charity during this time of year. Last December, the VCS choirs raised $2000.00 after expenses.

Admission is by donation ($10 – 20.00 suggested amount). All proceeds (after expenses) will go to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank (no food items please).

“And then, they’ll do something I (Grinch) hate most of all. Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small, will stand close together with Christmas bells ringing. They’ll stand hand in hand, and those Whos will start singing.

With each $1 VCS Choirs donate, GVFB can purchase at least $3 worth of nutritious groceries and fresh produce for the thousands of people they support each week. Family and friends are welcome!
