On Friday, May 2 the Reason for Hope Society will be making a donation of $10,000 to the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute to aid Metastatic Cancer Research.

The presentation will take place at Glasgow Square Theatre at 7:30 p.m.

This donation has been made possible due to support of sponsors, local businesses and the general public of the 6th annual Reason for Hope Concert held Nov. 1 at Glasgow Square Theatre.

The evening will also feature a performance by Toronto based New Glasgow native Mary Stewart. Mary is the daughter of Reason for Hope founder the late Emma Lee Stewart. Mary, who is currently on tour in Atlantic Canada in support of her CD “Chances Are I Like You,” is laying the groundwork for her third CD to be released in 2015.

“It seems only fitting that we make our donation for cancer research when Mary is in the area,” said Reason for Hope chair Jim Stewart. “She performed at all of our past events and played an instrumental role in creating the Reason for Hope CD Project. It’s our way of saying thank you to all who have made this donation possible.”

Doors will open at 7 p.m. and will be informal cabaret seating.

There will be no tickets sold for the event, although donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds going to the Reason for Hope Society.
