"Chase the Ace Fundraiser"
The Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation has long wanted to see a Performing Arts Centre in our community.
Because the performing arts, including music, dance, storytelling, and acting have played such a pivotal role in our region, a centre is badly needed. The Cultural Foundation is now sponsoring a “Chase the Ace” Fundraiser, and the bulk of any money raised will go to a Performing Arts Centre Fund.
