Edmonton International Street Performers Festival’s Comedy Cares Program and iHuman Youth Society were presented fun “cheques” and real ones at City Hall on September 30. They were the beneficiaries of the proceeds from the 24th Annual Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts.
Mayor Stephen Mandel and PACE’s Treasurer Karen Brown Fournel presented iHuman’s Executive Director Catherine Broomfield with a memento “cheque”, laminated onto a skateboard deck symbolizing the youth with whom they work.
Sue Broderick, Board Chair for the Edmonton
International Street Performers Festival, accepted a series of brightly coloured scarves pulled from a top hat culminating with a final scarf bearing the donation information for their Comedy Cares Program. The presentation’s lighthearted vein was emblematic of of the “healing through laughter” maxim the program brings to all its visits to patients in local long term care facilities.
