“We are going to have themed nights, it is just going to be really entertaining! We are excited to bring this community event back to Cumberland. We hope that this will provide consistent

funding for our programs and services and that as the event grows, we can have nights where the revenue goes to other local projects as well. For this pilot year, the funding will help to

support our Youth Centre, after school programming and healthy lunch program,” said Kate Ashton, CCSS program co-ordinator.
