“CEOL KIDS” LAUNCHES DONATION DRIVE
The Toronto-based music collective Ceol Kids is excited to announce the start of their 2020 donation drive. The group kicked things off with a launch party at Junction City Music Hall on February 29th, the night their website went live for this campaign.
The evening featured five bands, made up of Ceol Kids members. Many of these musicians are stalwarts of the Toronto rock scene, from bands such as Joan Smith and the Jane Does, Sundecay, Lousy Riders, Christian and the Sinners (and bagpiper Henry Muth!), to name a few.
Since the group’s inception in 2010, Ceol Kids has been donating their time and considerable talent to raise money for Regent Park School of Music, who provide music instruction to children and youth in Toronto by removing the financial obstacle. Under the guidance of founder and driving force Julian Vardy, Ceol Kids is poised to drive donations over the $100K mark (over ten years) for the music school.
In a program that is part online campaign and part live event, interested supporters can visit the Ceol Kids website to suggest a song, or donate money towards a song already on the list. The campaign culminates with the twenty-five top-earning songs making up the set list for the Ceol Kids live concert at The Mod Club on May 29th.
Ceol Kids invites Spill readers who wish to support, to visit www.ceolkids.com.
