SISTERS OF SOUL 2: Ladies of the 80’s
Sunday April 13, 2014 Kay Meek Centre VIP reception 6pm Doors 7pm Concert 7:30pm
Vancouver, BC ‐ Sisters of Soul 2: Ladies of the 80’s, is the third annual benefit concert and auction presented by Avalon Recovery Society to raise spirits, funds and awareness. The Society operates three drop‐in centres, (Vancouver, White Rock and North Shore), offers peer‐led 12 step support meetings, child minding, resource and referral information, a clothing closet, and education and wellness programs, for women in recovery from addiction.
SISTERS OF SOUL 2: Ladies of the 80’s features hit songs by female artists including Whitney Houston, Cher, Madonna, and many more, as well as inspirational original music by some of Vancouver’s best songwriters. The vocalists, and vocal groups, will be accompanied by one of the West Coast’s most sought‐after musicians, Juno award winner, Grammy‐nominated Michael Creber, and his stellar band.
“Sisters of Soul provides, Avalon Recovery Society the opportunity to reach out to many women who may not know where to go for help” states Beverlie Jansen, Avalon Board President. “The need is very real and growing ‐ last year our Centres received 35,000 visits by women and over 1700 visits by children. A 10.5% and 2% increase respectively from the year before” says Jansen.
Sisters of Soul are a passionate group of professional and promising student vocalists, graphic designers and producers who donate their time and talent to non‐profit organizations helping women and young artists in recovery. Many of the vocalists have a direct connection to the disease of addiction; some have inspiring stories of personal recovery; some have lost friends and family to eating disorders, alcohol and substance abuse. “We are very fortunate to be surrounded by such caring and dedicated individuals,” says Jansen. “Their support of the work we do at Avalon is truly inspiring. Sisters of Soul 2 will be a fun and memorable evening for all. Join us!”
In addition to the fabulous music, the event also features a live and silent auction. Highlights include: VIP Tickets to a taping of The Voice in Los Angeles with hotel accommodation; one week stay at the Grand Luxxe in Nuevo Vallarta; a visit to the set of Continuum; a deluxe package to see Cher’s D2K Concert; and a Hawksworth/Rosewood Hotel Georgia dinner and hotel stay package. A ticket raffle comprised of a $2500 ring, men’s watch and pearl earrings will be available for purchase at the concert as well as through Edgemont Village Jeweler and all three Avalon Women’s Centres prior to the event.
