This year’s goal is to raise $20,000. Click on “Make a Donation” above which leads you to the CanadaHelps.org link. Please remember, your donation is tax deductible.
Thank you for your continued support and have a safe and happy summer.
President, the Foundation
Alan Doyle, actor, producer, newly-minted best-selling author, and best-known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, released his second solo album, So Let’s Go, in January 2015. So Let’s Go remains consistent with Alan Doyle’s enthusiasm for the wider world combined with a love for the comfort of home. The title-track is a rousing rallying cry that’s only further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner.
Equally adept at drawing a crowd, Doyle & the Beautiful Gypsies are bringing their energetic show to the McPherson Playhouse November 18th in support of Community Living Victoria’s 10th annual Concert for Hope Help Home. All proceeds from this fundraising event go to support people with developmental disabilities in our community.
So Let’s Go continues to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”
