If you’re looking for different ways to support CMHA-PEI Division look no further! We’re so lucky to have great community support. Here are a few individuals and businesses that either pledge a % of sales to CMHA-PEI or host third party events (this means we’re not the organizers) where CMHA-PEI is the recipient of proceeds. How great is that?!?
EVENTS YOU CAN ATTEND
From his Vaudeville days to his final moments, the tale of the Hollywood icon Charlie Chaplin is told by local performer Scott Chandler. During the performance, he’ll take the audience through Charlie’s life of constant contrast from his rags to riches, from his crazy to brilliant, and from his loved to hated. Although best known for his silent comedy films, the performance also journeys through Chaplin’s many other attributes as a composer, a lover, a writer, a director, a political activist and as WC Fields once said “the best ballet dancer that ever lived.”
Described as ‘the comedy, tragedy, music, dance, acrobat, slapstick and gymnastics show’, Chandler stays true to the spirit of Charlie Chaplin by writing, directing and performing the show entirely himself. As a former National gymnastics champion and Olympic training team member, his personality and athletic background lend themselves perfectly to impersonating one of the world’s greatest impersonators. The show will be accompanied with live musical performance by accomplished local fiddler Courtney Hogan, along with singer/guitarist Norman Stewart, step dances and bagpipers.
Additionally the show has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association, PEI Division and a portion of each ticket sale, along with a 50/50 draw and silent auction prior to the performance, will be donated to support mental health programs and services for Islanders.
