PACE issued the following Media Advisory for our annual Donation Presentation wherein our chosen charity partner receives a special cheque from the proceeds of our Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts. PACE has contributed over $147,000 over the years to charities in support of their arts-related activities.
In this, our silver anniversary year, Mayor Stephen Mandel and PACE are proud to have the Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton’s Centre for Art and Music as our charity partner.
Thank you, one and all, for your past support over the years. You are all one of the main reasons why PACE’s Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts – honouring the wonderful partnerships among Edmonton’s arts and business sectors – has become such a tremendous success.
