"Dining With the Pops For Literacy"
On June 8, 2017, The Winnipeg Pops Orchestra was proud to be the featured entertainment for a very special fundraising event, “Dining With The Pops For Literacy”
The evening was hosted by the Literacy Department at the John Howard Society of Manitoba, who partner with the National Peter Gzowski Foundation for the purpose of promoting literacy awareness. Peter Gzowski was a celebrity author, journalist and CBC Radio commentator, known for his daily show, “Morningside”. Upon his passing in 2002, a national foundation was formed to continue Peter’s legacy and passion for literacy.
Well known CBC Radio spokesperson, Shelagh Rogers, was the guest speaker and the 50 - piece Winnipeg Pops Orchestra providing the entertainment. The event was held on at the CanadInn Club Regent Event Centre.
