The Big Band Music Night fundraiser in support of The Beach Cares will take place this Saturday, Oct. 21.
Set for Beach United Church from 7 to 10 p.m., the evening will feature vocalists John Amato and Shannon McDougall performing with the 17-piece Toronto All Star Big Band.
The Beach Cares (TBC) is a local church and community organization founded in 2015 to sponsor refugees.
It is a joint project of Beach United Church, The Anglican Church of St. Aidan, and members of the local community. TBC is currently sponsoring a Syrian-Ukrainian couple who arrived in Toronto in March 2023.
Along with the performances, The Big Band Music Night will feature a silent auction, gift baskets, door prizes hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, a dance demo and more.
Tickets are $50.
