May 2014 – Songs 4 SchoolBOX

Songs for SchoolBOX was a smashing success, thanks to the Shirley Case ‘Super Ninjas’! The organizing committee did an amazing job of finding top notch talent for the night and a great variety of silent auction items for attendees to bid on. The night included so many wonderful and talented performers: Judith Lander, Jessica Chaikowsky, Devon Hubka, Natalie Kulesza, Lada Darewych, Kieran MacMillan and Nicaraguan guitarist, Carmelo.

A special thanks to SchoolBOX Founder, Tom Affleck, for speaking and inspiring so many at the event. This event will help build a new classroom at a rural school in Nicaragua in memory of Shirley Case, a Canadian aid worker whose life was cut short in Afghanistan in 2008. This will be the third school project by the ‘Super Ninja’s’ who have also helped provide school supplies, libraries and furnishings for SchoolBOX partner schools in Nicaragua.

Thanks again to all the organizers: Jenn Atkinson, Jessica Chaikowsky, Andrew Dundass, Sarah Dale-Harris, April Dawn Blackwell, Sam Campana & Michelle Markwart for Making Education Possible for countless students and teachers in Nicaragua.
