TOYS FOR KIDS
Continuing our partnership from last year, our audience and GSO musicians brought the true spirit of Christmas to the Holiday Classics concert on Dec 9, 2012, by bringing an unwrapped new toy for the Children’s Foundation’s Adopt-a-Family toy drive. Adopt-A-Family is part of the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington
Three full bags of toys and games AND a giant Teddy were delivered by Ron Dolynchuk, GSO viola, to Sheila Robinson, volunteer with Adopt-A-Family (Both pictured)
GUELPH CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION AMAZING RACE
On June 2, 2012 the GSO participated in the Guelph Children’s Foundation’s Southwestern Ontario Amazing Race which raised $68,000 for Children’s programs in our city. At our station “Play that Tune or Name that Tune”, teams had a choice to learn to play Twinkle Twinkle on a violin together (with one team member playing the notes and the other guiding the bow over the strings) or to correctly identify ten pieces from a list of fifty . Such a fun day!
