TOM JACKSON, GEORGE CANYON & FRIENDS HELP END HUNGER ONE SONG AT A TIME WITH 2013 HURON CAROLE CONCERT SERIES
Christmas is a wonderful time of peace, harmony, optimism, and good will towards others. So it is in that spirit that the annual Huron Carole concert series returns this year with its national tour to help raise funds and awareness for Canada’s hungry. With over 18 stops throughout the country and an assortment of high quality musical talent including George Canyon, One More Girl, Beverley Mahood and Shannon Gaye, founder Tom Jackson’s call to end hunger is ready to be heard once again in communities large and small, near and far.
Since 1987, Canadian actor and musician Tom Jackson has been working hard to bring the message to end hunger by cultivating a network of like-minded artists from around the country brought together with the common interest of helping Canada’s needy. While under the name of The Huron Carole and Singing for Supper, the concert series has helped spread awareness of the nation’s hunger problems and raise funds to help food bank workers and volunteers accomplish their mission of ending hunger. “There’s so much work to be done to quell this country’s problem with hunger and it’s hard to believe that in a country such as ours this is still an ongoing issue.” states Jackson. “It’s a really good feeling to be able to help our brothers and sisters in need to feed their family and themselves, which is such a small and basic thing to ask when you think about it.”
The Huron Carole is presented by Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life and proudly sponsored by Enbridge, NOV Wilson, Sentry Investments and CMT.
