funds for the OUT OF THE COLD program at Erskine Presbyterian Church in Hamilton.
I am fortunate to have some talented friends (Seriously, they are WORLD CLASS performers),
colleagues (enemies) and students (part of my evil army of singers) who are willing (forced)
to join me on stage for this fun event.
