Raise Your Voice in Alliston for Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation and Gibson Centre

·1 min read

A single voice could raise cash for health and art.

The Raise Your Voice contest and virtual concert is a fundraiser focusing on both the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Gibson Centre.

“We wanted to reach out to the community in this new safe world we’re living in and raise money for two very different causes,” said spokesperson Whitney Sallach.

Sallach is urging amateur performers from Simcoe County to submit a song by March 14 before midnight for the June 3 virtual singing contest finale.

Singers will be judged by Canadian musicians Marshall Dane Erin McCallum and Sophia Fracassi, who will also perform at the event.

Contestants are asked to submit a sample of their singing, and assist the hospital and art centre by encouraging virtual concert ticket sales and the launch of the voting event.

Three contestants will be chosen to sing at the virtual concert, and the grand prize winner will receive $1,000.
