“Music is the universal language ... it brings people together.” — Ella Fitzgerald “The First Lady of Song”
In the spirit of the holidays, IMP Solutions invited customers and vendor partners to share in holiday cheer at its much-anticipated 9th Annual Songwriters’ Circle on December 18 at Casino Nova Scotia. With more than 350 attendees, the Songwriters’ Circle transcends its size, creating an intimate kitchen party atmosphere that is as warm and inviting as a family holiday gathering. Everyone came together for an evening of amazing music, fellowship and giving back to the Atlantic Canadian community they all love.
The Magic of Music
The Songwriters’ Circle is the brain child of singer/songwriter, Bruce Guthro. This year he brought along fellow musicians Matt Minglewood, Myles Goodwyn and Heather Rankin to delight the audience with straight-to-the-heart songs that captivated imaginations and wrapped the audience in the spirit of the season. A troubadour and story teller, Bruce Guthro captivates audiences around the world and it’s such an honor to have him and his friends perform each year in this holiday tradition.
Sharing Love, Kindness and Toys with IWK Patients
In addition to world-class entertainment, this event spotlighted giving back to our Atlantic Canadian community with the 4th Annual IWK Shopping Spree, benefitting children at IWK Hospital. Haley Clarke and her elves were awarded more than $5,000 to spend on toys from Toys R Us for patients in IWK.
Haley’s elves included past winners, Michelle Mercier, Rachel Plowman and Blair MacKinnon, as well as Dell Technologies’ David Gauthier, and IMP Solutions’ Laurie Power, David MacKinnon and Monique Volpe. They were joined by Bruce Guthro and Heather Rankin in the Teen Lounge who sang Christmas carols, and spent the afternoon with the children creating holiday crafts.
Thank you to the team at Dell Technologies, Alain Lamoureux from HP Enterprise (HPE), as well as the management and staff of IMP Group and IMP Solutions for your generous donations.
