Join us at 7PM (AST – HALIFAX/NOVA SCOTIA) every night for #Annedemic: The East Pointers and Friends read Anne of Green Gables.
Every night you can join us on Facebook Live and hear the next chapter of this Canadian Classic read aloud by us or one of our friends in an attempt to raise spirits and raise funds. Our guest list is looking great, and we’ll announce each reader the morning of the day that they read.
Follow this event for information on reader and guest announcements and special updates.
Please donate https://www.gofundme.com/f/annedemic-the-east-pointers-and-friends to support our artistic and musical community.
The funds raised will be divided as follows: 40% reader, 40% to the Unison Benevolent Fund which supports musicians in crisis, and 20% admin. Some readers have already chosen to donate their portion of monies raised to Unison. We know a lot of people are in a pinch right now, so we’d love to have you join us in watching, whether you donate or not.
So don’t forget: 7PM (AST) from Friday 20th March – log on in the spirit of online good times, community, connection and celebration of PEI, at The East Pointers.
We hope to see you there, Kindred Spirits.
Love from Koady, Jake, Tim and TEP Team.
