Herizon House – Hope Rising
VanDusen Chevrolet Buick GMC was pleased to be a sponsor for Herizon House during their Second Annual Concert Fundraiser, Hope Rising.
Hope Rising Concert is an annual event to not only raise funds, but also awareness for Herizon House and their mission. This year’s event was held on June 10, at the St. Francis Centre for Community, Arts and Culture, right here in Ajax. It was a night filled with live music, dancing and entertaining fundraising activities. The night began with a greeting from Vanessa Falcon, Executive Director of Herizon House, and Antony Robart, Master of Ceremonies, and Anchor of Global News at 11. Then it was onto the live music. Singer-songwriter, Andria Simone performed her first of three sets during the night. Between her soul-flavored performances, a live auction and silent auction was held to raise funds for this great cause.
