Every day we experience the open and giving hearts of Islanders. We received the following email from Campbell Webster offering up this great fundraiser in honour of the Banks family who has made the success of Anne & Gilbert second to none.
“One of the great joys of working on Anne & Gilbert these past 14 years is working with the entire, yes entire, Banks family.
– Brittany has either choreographed, or directed, or performed in every production in PEI, as well as the 2015 National Arts Centre production.
– Michelle has been fulfilling her role for many years as a
responsible company manager and nurturing young company manager.
– Janelle has been on stage as a performer and backstage helping care for the 100 plus costumes.
– Brother Brandon was the original Paul Irving in 2005 at the Victoria Playhouse.
– And Jim Banks has been the all around support to the lot of them, including doing the archival videos of the productions.
Through it all, they have been dependable, inspirational, warm, nurturing, and talented. Great team, great friends.
For this reason, we are celebrating their contribution to this show and their community on Thursday, October 18th.
Here is how: For that performance we asked Michelle what charity she would like to support on that day. Michelle picked Lennon House, which you can read about at lennonhouse.ca.
So in the name of the Banks family, a promocode LENNON has been created for that day. It entitles the user to buy any ticket to the performance for $27.75 plus taxes and fees. 100% of the amount of the tickets sold using that promocode will be donated to LENNON house.
So pencil in October 18th as a day we celebrate the Banks family…and raise some money, at their suggestion, for Lennon House.”
Thank you Campbell Webster and Michelle Banks for picking us as your benefactor for this fundraiser. Blessings to you all.
