FUNDRAISING & CONCERT INFORMATION
2017-2018




 “The St. James Assiniboia-Divisional Concert Choir Inc. exists to assist the Divisional Choirs by raising funds used to help reduce performance and travelling costs. The choirs exist to provide musical enrichment to talented young singers in the division, choral entertainment to others and to perform and compete in competitions and festivals.”

Welcome to the St. James-Assiniboia Divisional Choirs 2017-2018 season!

Fundraising Information
All fundraising by the SJASD Divisional Choir Choristers throughout the year is optional. Junior and Senior Choristers have individual accounts with numerous opportunities to fundraise. Funds in these accounts can be accessed for divisional choir travel or for divisional choir camp. Balances can be carried forward from year to year.  If the chorister is no longer with the organization, balances can be transferred to other chorister accounts (who are currently in the divisional choir) or transferred to Divisional Choir General Funds.

Please Note: There are no individual fundraising accounts for the Divisional Children’s Choir as travel is limited to the City of Winnipeg. All fundraising proceeds generated by the Divisional Children’s Choir members go into the General Funds Account.

There are two large fundraiser events each year: The Candlelight Choral Concert and the Divisional Choirs Cabaret. All events will include a Silent Auction and a 50/50 draw with the proceeds going directly into the general funds.

Both the Junior and Senior Choir have planned trips in the spring of 2018 which will cost approximately $1500.00-$2000.00 per chorister. General Funds and Individual Fundraising Accounts will be used to offset the costs to families.

Concert Information
There are four concerts per year; The Divisional Choirs Fall Concert on November 2, 2017, the Candlelight Choral Concert on December 4, 2017, the Divisional Choirs Cabaret April 22, 2018 and the Divisional Choirs Spring Concert May 10, 2018.

At the Fall and Spring concerts, each choir takes a turn at hosting a reception. This entails providing dainties and refreshments to families immediately following the event. Divisional Choir Parents will assist the volunteers in the set up. Families are requested to donate one dozen dainties for the reception. Divisional Choir Directors will provide details to families several weeks in advance of each event.

At the Cabaret, all three Divisional Choirs provide dainties. A committee is established in advance to assist with the reception at intermission. There will also be a Silent Auction, a 50/50 draw and a silver collection at this event with the proceeds going to general accounts and local charities.

For more information, please contact Jackie Gagné @ 204-837-5886 ext. 2109.

Sincerely,

Jackie Gagné
Coordinator of the Arts
