Thank you so much to everyone who joined in! Together we raised $12,419.10 for the ME | FM Society of BC… which brings Mariposa’s charity fundraising total to over $116,000 since our company started!
Ever since Opera Mariposa’s inception, we’ve held an annual Benefit + Awareness event in May to raise funds and awareness for chronic neuro-immune diseases. This year, 100% of the proceeds benefited the ME | FM Society of BC – and support was tripled thanks to matching donations by generous sponsors. Even though our official event is over, you can still enjoy the music, videos and artwork showcase online below, and find some of the media coverage – including stories from The Peak, BC Disability, Broadway World and Stir Vancouver, and a special Mariposa radio episode in honour of Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Plus, our new merch store is sticking around, so be sure to check it out!
