LTABC Fundraising Concert

Posted by on in Lifestyle

Last Saturday, the Land Trust Alliance of BC held a fundraising show at the Cambie Esquimalt to raise funds and awareness for land trusts in BC.  The show featured singer-songwriters Richard Kim, Niska Napoleon and Jon Choi, along with local band Citizen Joy.

Overall, it was a great night of music and fundraising.  With awesome music from all the performers, the atmosphere was amazing right from the start.   We raised over $270 for conservation efforts and most importantly, raised awareness about the issues facing BC's natural heritage and its preservation for future generations. 

We hope everybody had a great time and look forward to seeing everyone again the next time we do a fundraising show!
