In 1986, award-winning Canadian broadcaster and journalist Peter Gzowski began raising funds for literacy through an annual golf tournament, The Peter Gzowski Invitational (PGI) – a single event that evolved into the national PGIs for Literacy. His goal was to raise much-needed resources for the thousands of adult learners who struggle with the challenge of low literacy. Held annually in every province and territory, the PGIs have raised more than $13.5 million since 1986. These funds directly support literacy initiatives in the provinces and territories where the PGIs are held.
PGI Quebec will sponsor a Benefit Concert and Silent Auction on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 at the Brome Lake Community Centre in Knowlton. The program features Connie Kaldor- a Juno Award winning folk singer. (http://www.conniekaldor.com/). A student and a volunteer from the Yamaska Literacy Council will be recognized for their achievements. Our poet Laureate for the event is the talented Laura Teasdale.
Proceeds from this evening will support the Yamaska Literacy Council‘s programs in our community. If you have an item to donate to the silent auction, or you would like to buy tickets to this fabulous and worthy event, call us at 450-263-7503.
