MusiCounts has been a proud charity partner of the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) since 2013 and thanks to this partnership we had a wonderful Canadian Country Music Week in Calgary.
On Thursday Sept 5, CCMA winner, Lindsay Ell joined MusiCounts and the CCMA to surprise students at Father Scollen School with a performance and a celebration of the instruments the school received from MusiCounts. Read more.
Then, MusiCounts held a silent auction at the CCMA Gala Dinner & Awards, raising nearly $4,000 for the charity. Thank you to all of those who bid on items – your donation will help put instruments into the hands of kids who need them most.
The week culminated with the CCMA Awards broadcast on Sunday September 8 at Scotiabank Saddledome. The CCMA donated $1 per ticket to MusiCounts, and there was an in-venue 50/50 in support of MusiCounts and the Calgary Flames Foundation. Lindsay Ell joined Shanessa, a student from Father Scollen School on the CCMA Award broadcast stage to speak about MusiCounts and the importance of Music Education.
Watch the special moment now:
MusiCounts is incredibly grateful to the CCMA and the country music community for their ongoing support of the charity and music education. Thank to Aeroplan for helping to make this trip possible. If you’d like to know more, or to donate Aeroplan Miles to MusiCounts, click here.
