About this Event

The Gold Box - Christmas Concert For OUR Homeless

***************************************************************

A group of local Brantford musicians are organizing a Christmas Concert FOR Our Homeless in December, being held at the Sanderson Centre. We’re looking at doing a type of “USA For Africa/Live Band Aid” type of event, where local performers come on and do a few songs, one after another with the main focus on doing a concert FOR the Homeless and giving THEM a Christmas Concert. Our goal is to unite with them in a show of community good will and love while enjoying Christmas cheer together. We want to give them acceptance to their sometimes nameless faces and make them feel appreciated, thereby paying it forward and bringing awareness within the entire audience.

The Gold Box is the legendary story of the single gold box left under the tree --- the one which is passed down through generations and never opened; as inside lies unconditional love. We definitely need that now more than ever!!!

Our homeless individuals will be invited and encouraged to attend --- obviously for free.

We will open the event up to the public and ask for monetary at-the-door donations from the attending public. The donations collected will then go to the Brantford Guardian Angels volunteer organization currently assisting the homeless and visiting regularly to the tent city of "Welcome Love Camp" -- distributing, tents, sleeping bags, toiletries, blankets, tarps, clothing and basic necessities. The Brantford Guardian Angels is spearheaded by Tracey Bucci, who will be in attendance at our show.

The musicians who have been invited and have tentatively agreed to take part are: Trysted Sister, Kristen Bezemer-Innersha, SIVLE and local superstar Sarah Smith. Our homeless will also be serenaded by Maura Edmunds and students from Starr Sensations. Our MC is Ed House.

While all of our entertainers and organization crew are donating their times & talents; there is Sanderson Centre staffing & operating costs associated with putting on this event. We’re reaching out to local businesses and organizations to inquire if they'd be willing to help us out with a monetary donation to assist with the operating costs to bring this much needed event to fruition. In return we can offer you social media name recognition on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook --- TV recognition on Rogers Community --- print recognition in the Expositor and BrantOne as well as marketing on Kijiji, posters, flyers, Facebook Live and emcee gratitude on the night of the event. Any amount is gratefully appreciated and accepted.

We thank those that have already agreed to sponsorship --- the response has been overwhelming. We are so grateful...WOW!!!

This is a time sensitive initiative and obviously we need responses at earliest possible convenience as we are starting to market & promote this event.

If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at: 519-771-5687 or email at: joanminnery@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you at the show...EVERYONE Deserves A Christmas Miracle & Good Cheer!!!

Musically Yours,

Joan Minnery
