Jake Mathias, creator of Barrie’s Live Music Show and brother Jorden have raised over $100,000.00 for local charities with March 28th marking their 1st year anniversary.
What a Great Platform!
Providing a wonderful platform for musicians to share their passionate talent virtually, we have been able to stay connected to our favorite local artists!
Teaming Up With:
Coming full circle this past year, they have teamed up with Dawn Mucci of Canada’s Top Mayor Award and Food Bank Canada for the entire month of April!
Canada’s Top Mayor Award, founded by Dawn has been a wonderful supporter of the Canada Food Bank Covid-19 Food Relief initiative through the Bring your ‘Eh Game series!
With many very exciting special guests joining Barrie Live Music this month it’s a great show and a great cause to support!
Sponsored throughout by Rock 95 and many more – Barrie Uncovered has also stepped up on behalf of the cause.
Just under $2000.00 from the beginning of April – they are well on the way to a record month of donations!
And Special Thanks To...
Jumping in with a huge assist is Danny Mucci of Mucci Farms, Kingsville, Ontario, with a truckload donation of fresh produce to our local Barrie Food Bank.
Danny tells us, “At Mucci Farms, giving back to the community is a high priority. After the year we’ve all had, it’s more important than ever to raise awareness and place an emphasis on building immune systems by increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. We also realize that healthy eating options aren’t necessarily available to everyone so we are proud to support a variety of initiatives and organizations to make it possible.”
Helping So Many...
Sharon Palmer, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Barrie Food Bank, is thrilled at the support of the local community.
“More and more families in our city are relying on the Food Bank to cover dietary needs and supplement their groceries since the beginning of Covid.”
We couldn’t be happier at the platform created for the artists we so have so dearly missed this past year!
It was so much fun getting everyone together via Zoom to discuss what we could do and introduce everyone! Watch the video for that discussion!
