MAC @ Markham Music Festival

This weekend the Markham Arts Council will be joining new author, MELISSA NICHOLS, and charitable organization B-STRONG! at the Markham Music Festival.

Melissa Nicholas has generously donated her Epiphone Acoustic Guitar to a raffle that will entirely benefit the Markham Arts Council and B-Strong!


A little about Melissa Nichols….

Her recently released book “Day by Day” is about “the instant transformation from healthy go-getter to dependent patient from removal of an unexpected brain tumor and the road to recovery.”

To see the trailer for her book on YouTube click here. For more information you can visit her website or “Like” her on Facebook.

A little about B-Strong! …

Their mission is to raise awareness of brain tumours and their impact, particularly on younger people. Remember Lindsay Bolger – who founded the B-Strong Fund with her family shortly after she was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumor in April of 2005 – how she remained positive and determined to help others manage challenges while supporting researchers to find a cure.

Visit their website and see their Facebook page for further information.

Friday June 20th (6 pm – 10 pm) & Saturday June 21st (11 am – 6:15 pm) to participate in the

raffle! The draw will happen on Saturday @ 6:20 pm.
