A Toe-tapping fundraiser for Farmers Helping Farmers
J.J. Chaisson is teaming up with Farmers Helping Farmers to present a special fundraising performance on Friday October 27th at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall at Holland College.
"Barry Cudmore reached out to me in the spring and I love the idea of it," said Chaisson.
"Islanders are always willing to help out and this is a vital part of the world we live in."
The Chaisson family has strong connections to Farmers Helping Farmers, including teacher Stan Chaisson who travelled to Kenya as a UPEI student.
"Some of the stories that Stan told me about Kenya are great," said J.J.
"He's an avid runner and men working out in the field would stop what they're doing and run with him in their rubber boots."
Farmers Helping Farmers also has deep roots in the Souris area and has been a beneficiary of the Souris Village Feast for a decade, helping to build cookhouses at more than a dozen schools in Kenya.
"We are thrilled that the Chaisson family is sharing their talents in support of Farmers Helping Farmers," says concert organizer Barry Cudmore.
"It's an opportunity for Islanders and visitors to enjoy an excellent night of entertainment and raise much-needed funds for our ongoing work in Kenya."
J.J. Chaisson will be joined by "a whole bunch of entertainers" including Darla MacPhee, Brent Chaisson, Kenny Chaisson and some step dancers.
"It will be a real old kitchen party," he said.
Tickets to the show are $30, with proceeds going to support Farmers Helping Farmers projects. You can buy tickets in person at Timothy’s World Coffee, 154 Great George Street. Tickets are also available by emailing [email protected], or by calling Barry Cudmore at 902-629-9784.
