Dance for hope fundraiser raises over $2,000
ver 100 members of the public came to the Legion in Cowansville for a fundraising dance featuring local band The Random Chance Band on Saturday, Oct.27.
In total, the event raised just under $2,200.
The funds raised were donated to the Brome Missisquoi Youth Foundation for their Houses of Hope initiative.
“It was one of the most successful ‘fun raising’ evenings for us,” commented Random Chance Band member John Hawley.
The group devotes its time and creative energies to supporting worthy local causes. “For us, it is an important way of giving back,” he explained in an interview in October, noting that the band has raised more than $20,000 for different local groups since its formation just a few years ago.
