2024 an eveninig of Wine & Song


On Thursday, May 23rd the Children’s Aid Foundation of Nova Scotia hosted its annual Evening of Wine & Song at the Gran Hall of the Cathedral Church of All Saints.

What a success it was, with the Grand Hall teaming with enthusiastic supporters of the foundation. A very special thank you to Owen O’Sound Lee, whose upbeat and inspiring music thrilled everyone, and to Atima Kamra, who shared her expertise on wines at our event. And of course, to everyone who attended our event. We could not help our province’s most vulnerable kids without you.

Special tanks to Gus Richardson who was out photographer for the evening.

2023 an eveninig of Wine & Song

On  June 1st the CAFNS was thrilled to host its first post-covid Evening of Wine & Song at the Cathedral Church of All Saints, featuring the extraordinary talent of Owen ‘O Sound Lee. Sommelier Jenny Dow from Bishop’s Cellar educated us on the wine selection.

The CAFNS is especially grateful to the Jack and Nance Giving Fund  — our premier donor for the Evening of Wine and Song.

It was a capacity crowd and a very enthusiastic and happy one.  Many thanks to all our supporters.
