Slice of Summer begins fundraising
The Slice of Summer musical program has been revived for 2018 after being cut from Canby's 2017 summer, and is looking to do some fundraising.
The new Slice of Summer board, led by Chairperson Lisa Leir, is getting geared up to try and raise $10,000 by April. The group is planning three shows next summer and will alternate weekends with the Movies in the Park program.
"Slice of Summer has been bringing music to the community for over two decades. 2017 was the first year since that tradition began that there were no concerts held at Wait Park. It was missed by many in the community, as it had been a staple for many years; something individuals and families did on a summer evening," said Leir in the group's fundraising letter.
The new Slice of Summer group is literally starting from scratch. With no funds in the coffers yet, the group is ready to see if they can make beautiful music together – with the help of financial assistance from the community.
"Our mission is to provide quality musical entertainment for the greater Canby community. In order to meet our mission and provide entertainment, we relay on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support," said Leir.
Contributions are tax-deductible and may be made to: Slice of Summer, Canby Livability Coalition, 1109 SW Frist Ave., Ste. F #639, Canby, OR 97013.
