The passion for Alli and her cause, the young adult cancer patient, was worn on our sleeves through the glowing heart pins sold in support of the cause. Once again, the concert was a corker! On the acoustic side, Dave Borins, violinist Blaise Alleyne, Petet Katz and Matthew Barber thrilled the audience. On the electric side, living legend Jackie Richardson returned to sing her soul to a tribute song to Alli, written by David Warrack. Grand Analog blended hip-hop, electronica and all-things-weird for an eccentric performance. Elvira Kurt made us laugh and Cynthia Dale, David Warrack and The George Randolph Academy Choir rekindled memories of Stratford and conjured up deep, incisive choral bliss. Kellylee Evans won our hearts with her vibrant style. It was a brilliant evening of which Alli would have been proud.

Proceeds from this 2008 event went to Gilda’s Club, Toronto, and Young Adult Cancer Canada.[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””][rev_slider takemyhand2008][/fullwidth]
