For over 20 years Jim Hill & Joan Wells have supported the Canadian College of Performing Arts and our students in innumerable ways.
Long-time lovers of the arts, and supporters of the grit and perseverance of young artists, Jim & Joanise have shown decades of leadership through named scholarships, in honour of their grandfather and their childhood music teacher respectively, and through the pairs' famous Soup Days (featured in a recent BACKSTAGE Blog - http://www.ccpacanada.com/backstage-student-soup-kitchen-a-labour-of-love-for-jim-and-joansie/).
In celebration of their wedding this May, Jim & Joansie are suggesting donations in lieu of gifts, and encouraging their loved ones to follow their philanthropic lead and to invest in this next generation of young artists and cultural leaders.
Thank you to Jim & Joanise for all of the ways you support our students and for this thoughtful inclusion of the College in your Big Day!
Thanks to your leadership and your encouragement, our students will receive robust training in the performing arts and career management, and a beautiful example of what it means to been engaged, dedicated, compassionate community members.
