HELP us keep “Inspirational Music in the Park” Concerts Running!
This weekly summer concert series has impacted hundreds of people in it's local community for the past 17 years by bringing a message of Hope through inspired and uplifting music of many styles. This is a popular volunteer based community event in Gage Park Brampton. New fees are now being applied for the use of Gage Park. Our community grant application has been denied. This is why we need your support!!!
Under the new policy, the fee to rent Gage Park for 13 events during the summer months is approximately $5,000. Add this new fee to our regular event costs, the total cost to run Inspirational Music in the Park in summer 2017 will be close to $20,000.

Perhaps between the mayor and city counselors, they could be funding this out of their pockets as a good-will gesture to the citizens that pay them so very well. Certainly, most of the rest of the employees of the City of Brampton can't afford to chip in on their part-time salaries.
