Join us for a virtual “Singin’ in the Grain” fundraising concert on, Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 8:00 pm, Central Time. Appropriately, October 16th is World Food Day.
Since 2011 the “Singin’ in the Grain” committee has organized annual fundraising concerts to support the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the concert became a virtual event in 2020. Given the positive response to that virtual concert we are delighted to invite you to another virtual Singin’ in the Grain concert.
Michelle Sawatzky of Golden West Radio will MC this musical event featuring three sets of talented musical guests who have offered their time and talents for you to enjoy in an hour of outstanding music. The Quonset Brothers from Winkler are back by popular demand. Quattro Grani is a quartet from Winnipeg featuring Matt Pauls, James Magnus-Johnston, Nolan Kehler, and Mike Wiebe. The musical duo of Kim Thiessen and Darryl Neustaedter Barg round out a lineup of wonderful musical talent.
Andy Harrington, Executive Director of Canadian Foodgrains Bank, will also offer a short update.
All donations will go to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank for Mennonite Central Committee’s agricultural programs in Haiti, a country that has been devastated by numerous disasters over the years and as recent as the earthquake this past August. This development work will improve food security in Haiti in years to come.
Special thanks to Darryl Neustaedter Barg for video production.
