Raising the Funds

Fundraiser at Confederation Centre of the Arts Raises $14,600 for Hurricane Relief

– Proceeds will go to the United Way of P.E.I. for distribution throughout Atlantic Canada –

Atlantic Canadians came together at Confederation Centre of the Arts on October 17 for a community-centric night of music with national phenomenon Choir! Choir! Choir! to raise funds for Hurricane Fiona relief. 

Sweet Relief: A Fiona Fundraiser Sing-Along featured performances from Poet Laureate of Prince Edward Island Julie Pellissier-Lush, Island musician Joce Reyome, and singer-songwriter Joel Plaskett. Other East Coasters tuned in via video message, including Tara MacLeanJenn GrantJonathan Torrens, and Alan Doyle

“We are very grateful to everyone who came out or donated from afar, and to the people behind the scenes who made this fundraiser happen so quickly and smoothly,” says Choir! Choir! Choir! creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman. “Thank you for welcoming us into your amazing community at such a tender time.”

Adilman and Goldman led the audience in rousing performances of classic songs, like “Here Comes the Sun”, “Lean on Me”, and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. 

The event, and its accompanying online auction, raised $14,600 for the United Way of Prince Edward Island. The funds will be distributed to United Way chapters across Atlantic Canada. 

“Coming together to sing was a real boost to the community at a time when the United Way is focusing on mobilizing 40 P.E.I. organizations for emergency response,” says Andrea MacDonald, CEO of the United Way of Prince Edward Island. “We know that the only way we can recover is to create new partnerships, and working with Confederation Centre of the Arts is a great example of that spirit.”

The Centre’s CEO Steve Bellamy adds, “We are grateful to the artists who contributed their talents and time to help Atlantic Canadians after Fiona. A thank you goes out to the corporate partners who provided prizes for the online auction, volunteers who gave their time, and everyone who donated to this worthy cause. It was an honour to host this event.”

After Fionna Fundraiser

Confederation Centre of the Arts to Host Major Fiona Fundraiser

– Toronto’s Choir! Choir! Choir! will co-present the show with proceeds going to the United Way –

The aftermath of Hurricane Fiona has left Atlantic Canadians, and many organizations and businesses, in need of major support. To help with recovery efforts, Confederation Centre of the Arts, in partnership with Choir! Choir! Choir! and the United Way of Prince Edward Island, is presenting a community-centric night of music. 

Sweet Relief: A Fiona Fundraiser Sing-Along will feature national phenomenon Choir! Choir! Choir!, a Toronto-based singing group led by creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman. The duo takes a non-traditional approach where the audience become the choir, creating an experience that is equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building. Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed tens of millions of video views online from a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base. The group exists to celebrate music and push boundaries, offering therapeutic benefits with the ultimate side effect: a powerful community. 

“Confederation Centre of the Arts is grateful for the community we belong to, and for the many people who have provided aid after Fiona,” says Centre CEO Steve Bellamy. “We are thrilled to host this event and grateful to have Choir! Choir! Choir! bringing their talents here.” 

Nobu Adilman of Choir! Choir! Choir! has a special connection to Atlantic Canada. “Every summer since I was a little kid, my family would pack up the car, escape Toronto and make the long drive to Prince Edward Island,” he says. “The Maritimes has given me so much and I felt helpless watching the devastation of Fiona from the safety of my home in Toronto. But now we have found a way to help.”

Andrea MacDonald, CEO of the United Way of PEI, noted that the concert is just what the community needs in that it will help with recovery efforts, and restore a sense of shared mission. “There is a real desire in the community to come together to rebuild. The hurricane has reminded us that we are stronger united, and it will also be so good for all of us to join our voices and be united by song.” 

The event is scheduled for Monday, October 17 at 7:30 p.m. and will include special guests to be announced in the coming days. Funds raised will be given to the United Way of Prince Edward Island and be distributed to chapters across Atlantic Canada that are racing to address the urgent needs of affected communities. Tickets to attend at the Centre’s Sobey Family Theatre are $20 (plus fees and tax), and patrons can make an additional donation upon checkout. An online silent auction will occur in conjunction with the event, which will also be livestreamed.

“Maritimers are famously resilient and resourceful,” adds Adilman. “We are proud to do what we can to help in the way we know best, a beautiful joyful fun night of singing with friends and strangers alike.”
