2019 BENEFIT EVENING


Video: Nicolas Tussing

On-stage for excellence: a festive evening in support of the next generation of circus arts!

On Wednesday, June 5th, the National Circus School Foundation celebrated the 27th Benefit Evening, raising more than $ 260 000. Proceeds from this event helped make it possible for the School’s 26 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. Thanks to  this program, nearly 3,000 students from the Montreal-area primary and secondary schools can see performances for free or at a reduced rate!

More than 650 guests congregated at Tohu to support the newly fledged circus artists!

Everyone at the Foundation would like to sincerely thank all donors and partners, Benefit Evening Committee members, board members of the School and Foundation, and all the volunteers. Without you, none of this success would have been possible.

260 000 times THANK YOU
