Taber musical group Cornucopia will be singing for charity on Feb. 19, at the Taber Evangelical Free church.
“They are involved with, this church is involved in Taber and Lethbridge, and they are helping to support refugees coming into the area,” said Brian Pollock, Cornucopia manager. “That’s really what Cornucopia really likes to do, is, you know, be part of the community, do things for charity – we’re sort of a nonprofit thing – just doing it for fun.”
Pollock and Darrel Croft, Cornucopia musical director, started Cornucopia last year. It is a community musical group, which sings popular songs from the 1950’s, 60s and 70s – songs that anyone would know basically – and after getting a bit of practice in, is starting to sing for charity.
While they are not charging admission to hear them sing, they do ask that you drop some change in the proverbial hat if you do come out and listen to them sing.
“We’re doing music, and there’s going to be a free-will offering (to hear us)… we’ll pass the hat around, and there’s no admission charge to the event.”
All donations will go to the Taber Refugee Support Project.
Cornucopia’s fundraiser will start at 7 p.m. on Feb. 19, at the Taber Evangelical Free church.
