Why Do We Sponsor This Contest?
The mediators at Cooper Mediation have a passion for music and are heavily involved in the Toronto music scene. Cooper Mediation hosts an annual music fundraiser, Vancestock, bringing musical talent to a wide ranging audience while raising funds for Trails Youth Initiatives. In addition, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cooper Mediation and the Cambridge Group of Clubs launched Vancestock Unplugged to bring an intimate listening experience for music lovers while directing all proceeds to the artists. Sponsorship of the Blues and Roots Radio International Song Contest lends itself well with the firm’s passion for music and helping artists.
