A fun and relaxed dessert evening for Launchpad New Immigrant Society, with special musical guests…
Matt Pierrot & Kaethe Wright invite you to help them kick-start a passion project 18 months in the making.
Launchpad, affiliated with Hope for the Nations seeks to serve the newly arrived and future Canadians who, back in their country of origin were professionals in well paid positions, but since moving to Canada find themselves struggling in low paying unskilled jobs.
“We offer scholarships, mentorship, and a pathway back to a professional career. Launchpad is a ‘pay it forward’ charity, and we hope that it will eventually become self funding. In the mean time, we need you! If you have a soft spot for the struggling newcomer, or if you were once there yourself and understand how hard it is, perhaps you would consider helping.”
This event on Oct 10th at the Pierrot’s will feature a story from Launchpad’s first graduate, plus special musical guests The Eisenhauers: a married folk duo from Kaslo BC. Their songs blend traditional alt-country with modern folk with new innovation and depth. They are favorites’ of Matt. THE EISENHAUSERS
