Young People Continue to Help Others

0

Fifteen young people, also known as St. Luke’s Cathedral Players, are looking forward to helping out others by supporting the Children’s Aid Society of Algoma’s Youth In Care Education Assistance Fund on Saturday, October 21 at 7 pm, at the Sault Community Theatre Centre.

Tickets are available from the Station Mall Ticket Kiosk for $ 21.00 with a special children’s rate of $ 3.00.  In recognition of 150 years of Confederation, the players present a show like no other with song, dance, drama, story-telling, and black light puppets with many outstanding featured guest artists.

Some in this particular group started helping others a decade ago as young as the age of six.  They now help lead the group.

They have purchased an alpaca for a family in Peru, adopted a polar bear, and raised many hundreds of dollars over the past ten years for over twenty worthy groups including Me to We, World Vision, Free the Children, Leprosy Foundation of Canada, Right to Play, Toronto Sick Kids Foundation, The Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Foundation, and the Humane Society of Sault Ste. Marie.

These charities were chosen and voted upon by the young people themselves.  In 2016, this year’s charity was suggested by a ten year old.  This is their second fund raiser for this education fund.  It is hard to say no to a ten year old with a winning smile and twinkling eyes.

To appreciate what a wonderful programme the St. Luke’s Cathedral Players are presenting in order to help the Children’s Aid Society of Algoma’s Youth In Care Education Assistance Fund, please see our poster or go to St. Luke’s web site stlukesalgoma.com/.   To read more on this year’s most worthwhile charity see www.algomacas.org/
