“Building Bridges Between Faith Traditions”

On Sunday February 10 we held our third annual multifaith concert featuring music, dance and chants from different traditions around the world. Our 2013 volunteer awards, nicknamed IFFY’s by Mayor Mandel, were given to Sofia Yaqub and Rabbi David Kunin. Popular young singer/songwriter Sean Sonego was the Master of Ceremonies, other entertainment was provided by the Balada Romanian Dance Ensemble, the Prince Charles Guitar & Fiddle Group, Nepalese Folk Dancers and the Willan Chorale. The stirring sound of the conch shell being blown opened the proceedings, Buddhist Compassion Chants raised us to an awakened consciousness,and prayers from the Eckankar and Baha’i traditions were included. Prizes were given to three young winners in our art contest.Bridge Mix
The silent auction was also very lively, and we thank everyone whose attendance, advertisements, donations of items and sponsorships in honour of our award recipients, all added up to make this our most successful fund raiser yet.
