SNAP Bloor West – Jim Fay Recipients Shine Brightly

The Jim Fay Music Bursary is awarded annually to at-risk youths between the ages of 16 and 24 who are or were homeless, live in the GTA and want to further their study or practice of traditional, folk or roots music. The 2011 winners are Ashton, Morgan, Vitus and Shasha. On December 17th, Ashton and Morgan received their awards as part of Gate 403’s Saturday Sessions’ All Star Christmas Party. The awards, totalling $4,000, may be used to purchase a musical instrument or equipment, register in a music workshop, pay for tuition to a music course or program or pay for private lessons. All four deserving recipients will be offered a chance to perform at SHINE! at Hugh’s Room on Sunday, February 26th.
