CCI student Kylie Dennis has always been looking out for others and supporting children in Africa. Now on Saturday, April 22nd at 7 pm, you can support Kylie along with her family at a benefit concert and silent auction.
St. Peter’s Anglican Church is hosting the event with Cobourg Collegiate Institute’s support and musical entertainment by the Royals.
Kylie is working hard to come back from a terrible skiing accident that happened in March. She suffered three brain bleeds, two neck fractures, and a broken jaw during the accident.
Kylie has always wanted to do her part in helping the AIDS orphans in Africa. Kylie estimated in an interview that she has raised over $15,000 through St. Peters ongoing initiatives. In January, Kylie got the opportunity for what she described as a dream come true — the chance to join principal Jeff Kawzenuk and other students on their annual Journey of Hope to Kilema, Tanzania.
Both St. Peter’s and CCI are coming together again on Saturday to help the family as they put Kylie first during her rehabilitation. The family reports she is starting to come back physically, but staying by her side at the Toronto hospital is taking a financial toll on them that organizers of the benefit want to help with.
Tickets are available at both the church (240 College St.) and the school (335 King St. E.), at $20 for adults and $10 for students. “Let’s rally for Kylie.”
