On Wednesday, June 6th, the National Circus School Foundation celebrated the 26th Benefit Evening, raising $150,090. Proceeds from this event helped make it possible for the School’s 19 graduating students to gain experience in the centre ring. They demonstrated their talent and creativity in two professional-caliber shows. In addition, some funds raised went towards the School Matinee Program. Because of this program, near 4,000 students from Montreal-area elementary and secondary schools can see performances for free or at a reduced rate!
Everyone at the Foundation would like to sincerely thank all donors and partners, Benefit Evening Committee members, Cirque du Soleil management, board members of the School and Foundation, and all the volunteers. Without you, none of this success would have been possible.
150,090 times THANK YOU!
