$16,000 raised for the Ottawa Food Bank

Big Soul Project produced and performed their annual Christmas Concert at Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre after 3 years of pandemic closures. The theme "Let's Celebrate!" was aptly named for everyone, choir, band, and audience alike, as we all felt very joyous during and after both the open dress rehearsal and the full concert.

Funds were raised within the choir to welcome guests to our concert who might not have otherwise been able to attend and we were so pleased they could share this joyful event with us.

This year we are thrilled to announce that between the two concerts BSP was able to raise $8,000 for the Ottawa Food Bank which was matched by an anonymous donor bringing the total to $16,000!! A reason to celebrate indeed.

We are looking forward to the next season and the opportunity to sing for other good causes in the Ottawa area. Hope to see you there!

From ‘0’ to $15,000 in 15 Minutes for the Ottawa Food Bank

Posted on January 4, 2018

$14,830 - to be exact. In December, those attending the two Big Soul Project Christmas Concerts raised an amazing $7,415 for the Ottawa Food Bank! It took only 15 minutes to collect this amount during our two performances. On top of this, a very generous anonymous donor didn’t hesitate to match it. Big Soul Project presented a cheque for $14,830 to the Ottawa Food Bank just before the holidays. Each dollar donated generates $5 of buying power. Therefore, the total donated translates into $75,000 of food purchases for the Food Bank – pretty amazing! As our concert patrons, BSP is deeply appreciative of your annual support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s mission, to “help people get beyond hunger.”  Ottawa – your generosity is bountiful! Thank you!
