The Blue Mountain Village Foundation is pleased to announce that Theatre Collingwood received $3,350 from the BMVF for Youth Drama Programming. Erica Angus, Artistic Director and Jim Anderson, Director received the cheque from Andrew Siegwart and Bruce Melhuish on July 25th in Blue Mountain Village.
"We are thrilled with the calibre of the successful applicants for funding various community based programs for youth" says Andrew Siegwart, President of the Foundation. "Drama and Theatre are an important part of enriching the lives of youth in our community. These programs will assist them to reach their potential."
"Theatre Collingwood is overwhelmed by the generosity of the Blue Mountain Village Foundation. Their support will enable us to bring youth into our drama programs that could not have financially afforded it themselves. Lives will be changed and spirits will soar." Says Erica Angus.
The Blue Mountain Village Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in our local communities through its financial support of registered charitable organizations whose activities provide benefit to the residents of our local communities, with an emphasis on children and family programs. In addition, the Foundation awards 5 Bob Comish Memorial Scholarships to 4 local high school students and a student from Georgian College, who have worked on the resort property.
