Jim Cuddy & Kathleen Edwards Perform for Literacy

The third annual An Evening of Wine & Words in support of the Centre’s family literacy programs was a smashing success.

Returning for a third year seemed to be a theme with Jim Cuddy, Mark Scholz, and about two-thirds of the audience. The evening began with cocktails in the foyer adjacent to the Empire Ballroom at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. The GIO Electric Scooter that was one of several items in the silent auction intrigued guests. Rumor has it that someone was seen driving it through the hotel later that evening.

The incomparable man of many hats, Mark Scholz, acted as Master of Ceremonies, auctioneer, and wine “commentator”. His wit and humour kept the sold out crowd engaged throughout the night.

The main event of the night was an intimate performance by Jim Cuddy and Kathleen Edwards. “At one point in the evening,” said Cindy Rae Tanguay, “I glanced around the room at fellow guests, and through their grins and tears, it was clear that Jim and Kathleen’s stories and music left an imprint on us all.”

A special thank you to the volunteer committee who put endless hours into making An Evening of Wine and Words a success. Thank you to our sponsors, donors, and attendees whose continued support helps raise money for the work of the Centre.
