On Saturday, March 15, more than 130 people gathered at the R. A. Steen Community Centre for a Chiara House benefit concert. Participants enjoyed an evening of music, food and contributed funds to support the completion of the Chiara Houseproject. Musical entertainment included Clare Schellenberg and friends, who opened with an enthusiastic invitation into the celebration. Fathers, Daughters and Friends followed with original and cover songs. The total amount of funds raised at the event was $3831.00.
Thank you to the musicians for offering their talents, to Brenda Suderman and friends for the quilts and cards prepared for Chiara House and to Home Street Mennonite Church popcorn crew.
Chiara House is a ministry of Mennonite Church Manitoba, Little Flowers Community, Eden Health Care Services and a not for profit company formed to bring this dream to reality.
