21 Sep Vancestock X Raised Over $36,000 For Trails Youth Initiatives!
Cooper Mediation and Trails Youth Initiative send out our heartfelt thanks for all the support of this year’s edition of Vancestock and one last polite and respectful request for you to consider donating to Vancestock. Please remember that 100% of your donation goes directly to Trails Youth Initiative.
There is no way to be unbiased but this year’s event may have been the best ever. The weather was wonderful, the grounds of Trails were beautiful and manicured to perfection, there were almost 175 people in attendance (not counting pets) and the music was spectacular. In addition, we raised over $36,000!
Over 10 years, Vancestock has raised over $325,000. This has allowed for dozens of at risk inner city youth to enter the “Four Seasons, Four Years, For Life” programme – a unique, outdoor, adventure-based programme that supports youth through experiential learning, skill development, high school credits, bursaries and mentorship. Trails challenges and equips vulnerable youth to become contributing members of the community.
For those of you who attended Vancestock X, you were treated to three fantastic performances – Sisters & Brothers [Logan, Jon and Harrison Cooper and Jess and Jacob Charendoff], soul, R&B and jazz performer Ian Janes, and the talented Toronto-based headlining act, Dione Taylor.
Take a look at the event photo and video galleries below!
