You are AWESOME! Thank you!

Well, 2013 has been an awesome year for us so far! Our fundraiser at The Levee was by far our MOST successful yet! So many lovely faces, so many talented bands, lots of sweet baked treats, pizza graciously donated by Stoggers Pizza, and just a really fun night. We would like to give a shout out to the wonderful Gene Browne and all of the staff of The Levee (our favourite bar! Such supporters of the arts). Also thanks to James Richard at 8 Limb Muay Thai for donating three memberships worth almost $900 to Engine Productions for the fundraiser! So many thanks! Also to Carolyn Ferrie for the donation of beautiful handmade scarves! As always, extra love to all of the musicians who performed: Avalon Stanley, The Corroborators, A Tribute to Dr. Dog (Evan Mercer, Tristan, Brad Mercer, Leon white & Nick Giles) and The Beer Patrice.

The ladies of EP being silly as always at our fundraiser!
