Hillcrest Lodge Fundraising Concert

October 4, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Putting the Fun in Fundraiser! The Orillia Concert Band along with the Orillia Big Band is proud to present a musical concert fundraiser in support of Hillcrest Lodge. The Orillia Concert Band will play some popular standards, like Poet and the Peasant and Blue Moon; and the Orillia Big Band will play some big band dance music, like Spain and That’s All. This is a very worthy cause in great need. Hillcrest Lodge was founded in 2008 for the purpose of providing housing to low-income, marginalized seniors and has become home for 30 very happy residents. The lodge provides bachelor apartments, two nutritious meals a day and a companionable community. This facility is unique in Canada. Come on out Orillia! Let’s see how much we can raise for our seniors while having a bang-up toe-tapping evening!
