Christmas is officially here with the holiday favorite, Beary Merry Event

by Maritime

Purchase your ticket, pick up a toy and join us for the Beary Merry Christmas Concert series taking place across Nova Scotia. The first concert takes place tonight at the Rebecca Cohn in Halifax.

Featuring the distinguished Stadacona Band of The Royal Canadian Navy, the Cantatrice Ensemble Girls Choir and CTV’s lovely and talented Emcee, Liz Rigney in Halifax, this important event provides much needed Christmas support for families, children and individuals while entertaining attendees with lively holiday tunes.

Last year, the Halifax Beary Merry event raised almost $3,500 and nearly 4,000 toys were provided to children. Thanks to the support of the Band, our communities and donors, The Salvation Army is able to help make Christmas much brighter for many.
