Benefit + Awareness Month
Raising voices in support of charity
Online May 1-June 1, 2023
Ever since Opera Mariposa started, we’ve held annual Benefit + Awareness events to raise funds and awareness for chronic neuro-immune diseases. Through the generosity of the community, we’ve raised over $116,000 in ten years. And now in 2023, we’re honouring the International Awareness Month for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Fibromyalgia (ME & FM) with an entire month of online programming!
From May 1-June 1, join us for music & videos, art, merch, prizes and more! 100% of the proceeds will benefit the ME | FM Society of BC, helping the rising number of people affected by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia and Long Covid.
Contributions will be TRIPLED up to $3,500 with matching sponsor donations, so your gift has 3x the impact!
Access: Free and by-donation ways to participate. Videos include captioning; music includes lyrics and translations; artwork includes alt text and image descriptions. Please enjoy our online offerings throughout the month, at your own pace. If you have questions or need help, please get in touch anytime!
