TONIGHT SAM IS THE MAY MOMONDAY CHARITY

SAM is the Momondays Charity for May 8, 2017 – Support SAM and Have a Great Evening of Entertainment, Laughter and a Really Great Time

How do you make a great momondays?

Momondays is a like a variety show bouncing off the walls of personal story-telling! Get ready for laughs and to be inspired and entertained!

MUSIC BY THE ECCO SINGERS!
Ecco Singers, no longer Winnipeg’s best kept secret, has been bringing music to the Manitoba scene since 1996. With members from a wide variety of backgrounds, this group has found a unique niche in the Winnipeg music community. We provide a regular concert season, in addition to special events ranging from a Big Band Dance to Rock Shows.

Thank You to The Winnipeg Foundation

For the past few years we started offering our members a Therapeutic Art Program.

This program was designed to offer another medium in which stroke survivors could use art as a way to express themselves and to try something new.

It was never intended to be an art ‘’class’’ but instead a way for our members to get together, have coffee, engage in conversation and as a bonus, walk away feeling proud of their art master pieces.

We provide the facilitator, the space and supplies and then sit back and watch their creativity flow.

In May 2014 we got some unfortunate news that our art therapist would be moving away to New York so we took that negative and turned it into a positive by having a special art exhibit/ going away party.

We took several pieces of art that the group had done, had them framed and turned our whole office into an art gallery which was open for all to view.

It was a great little event and a proud moment for our organization to see this group so excited and enjoying themselves. Their eyes lit up seeing all their hard work framed and displayed and although it was sad to see our art therapist go, spirits were still high knowing that the group would (and does) continue on.

This art group continues to meet once a week and they have all come so far in gaining new skills or regaining skills they thought they lost.

We are proud of our art group and proud to say that we had support of The Winnipeg Foundation to make this program available.

Thank you to The Winnipeg Foundation for all their support over 2014. We were able to make our members very happy with your generosity and care towards our programs. Without organizations like yours, charities like us would not be able to thrive.

Sincere thanks from all our members, volunteers, Board and staff!

It’s only $25.00 for an individual or $35.00 for a family. That covers the whole year!

Most of our programs are included with the annual fee however, there are a few that have some additional fees per class starting January 1st, 2015:

Taiji Class: $5 per session for members – $10 for non-members

Physio Class: $5 per session for members – $10 for non-members

Games Day: $1.00 per Games Day visit

Our organization has day to day fees that cost us money to keep our facility running. Proceeds go toward helping out our members, their families and our local community. Thank you for your understanding and without your support, we wouldn’t be able to give back as much as we do.
