Jim Cuddy and Melanie Doane rock it for voice care

• March 7, 2013 • Comments (0)

A few years later, in 2009, Dr. Anderson and I started building a team of volunteers to raise money to fund a permanent research chair in voice at St. Michael’s Hospital, the first of its kind in Canada.   This chair would enable the hospital to assemble a multidisciplinary team around Dr. Anderson, to help Canadian patients with all sorts of voice problems, now and in the future.  Early on, we received an anonymous donation of $100,000, which was a real confidence-booster for the team.   Then, Juno award-winners Jim Cuddy and Melanie Doane generously agreed to play for beer money for our worthy cause.  The concert (pic below) was held in September 2011 at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen and raised over $125,000 net for the Voice Chair at St. Michael’s Hospital.   Jim, Mel, Colin Cripps, Anne Lindsay, and Mike Borkosky were all fantastic.   Thanks, guys!!
