Haunted Montreal is proud to support the Ange-Aimée Woods Bursary with a special performance of Haunted Downtown on Sunday, August 9 at 8 p.m. Donations of $20 + will be accepted at the door of Andrew’s Pub (1241 Guy Street) and all proceeds will go to the Bursary fund.
Ange-Aimée Woods was a beloved journalist who inspired a generation of Montrealers with her savoir faire, friendly demeanor, quirky style, critical thinking and dedication to reporting on stories of local importance, including both in the news and the arts.
She worked at CBC Radio as an arts reporter, researcher, news reporter, host, news editor and a senior producer of Homerun.
For over a year, friends and colleagues have been working very hard to create a permanent Bursary in her name to support journalism students at Concordia University, her alma mater. A variety of fundraisers have been held, and we are nearing the goal of reaching $15,000.00 to ensure the Bursary can continue in perpetuity. Haunted Montreal is proud to hold what might very well be the final fundraiser before the goal is reached.
Listen to Anne Lagacé Dowson interview Liz Faure on CJAD about Ange-Aimée Woods and the Haunted Downtown Montreal fundraiser.
There is a Facebook page for the event with full details about the fundraiser.
Please also consider making an Online Donation to the Bursary Fund.
