On December 23rd we entered another edition of Dorg’s Annual Sing a Long into the history books. 

This was the 40th year for the event and we raised a staggering $14,887.  That brings our Grand Total to $186,021.  We look forward to doing it all again next year.



Here are the links to the pictures my brother-in-law Len took that night, and a link to me being interviewed on Global TV after I took the funds down to the Salvation Harbour Lights Mission on Christmas day:




Unprecedented Media Coverage :  

Never have the Merry-Makers garnered this much media attention. CKNW, You Tube and the Vancouver Sun all paid tribute.  A sampling of the social and print media are captured below on the following links:
