Woof! VO Goes to the Animals

To all our two legged and four legged friends:

On Sunday, September 13, Vancouver Opera will be doing the walk with the BCSCPA's 2009 "Paws for a Cause...Walk for the Animals" campaign. This event is the largest fundraising campaign in support of animals in BC.

VO is participating in Paws for a Cause as a part of our Golden Anniversary Community Connections program, where VO has pledged a total of 10000 hours of volunteer service to charitable organizations as a thank you to the community for 50 years of support.

The Community Connections program which launched July 1 has already raised 2000 volunteer hours! And we've just begun.

Some organizations touched were: BC Children's Hospital Foundation, Camp Moomba Yogathon, Weekend to End Breast Cancer, Powell Street Festival, Union Gospel Mission and Blogathon.

So if you're a lover of opera and animals like we are here, join us! Be a part of our team! You can either make a donation or come out with us on the walk September 13.

Who knows? We may even have some skittles candies to give out on our walk...
