Description

There Will Be JOY Benefit Concert and Silent ART Auction is a FREE Event with a Donation to the Emerson Family Educational Fund - Please go to www.therewillbejoy.ca for details.

There Will Be JOY! Out of heartbreak and loss comes compassion and support. Out of sorrow comes appreciation of what we have.

Last September, Howie Emerson and his children Grace, James and Kate suffered the unimaginable loss of Anna, their wife and mother, and Charles, their new-born son and brother. During that time, Howie made two promises to his children. He promised them that they would be okay and that there would be joy back in their home.

It has been six months, and my partner Don and I felt it was time to celebrate Anna’s and Charles lives. To that end, we are organizing the “There Will Be Joy” Benefit Concert and Silent Auction, with all the proceeds going to the Emerson Children’s Education Fund. This fund was established by Anna’s work colleagues at Hatch International, where Anna worked as a Mechanical Engineer.


 A most powerful article was written by Jon Wells of the Hamilton Spectator on September 29, 2018 that speaks to our Benefit’s Theme “There will be JOY’
 - see link below

Join us for an afternoon of MUSIC and ART as we raise money for the Emerson Children Education fund and celebrate the lives of Anna and Charlie. The afternoon will include a many musicians (who are sharing their lalent and time) that range from singer songwriters, blues, traditional folk, cover band and children's music. Thanks to many artisans and businesses their will also be a silent auction. Local refreshments will be available.
