Daffodil Place is a new "home away from home" for people dealing with cancer. This is a new lodge in St. John's, Newfoundland to house people getting cancer treatment in the city.
The Daffodil Place Dream Show put off its 1st concert on August 23rd, 2008 at the Holy Heart Theatre. We had entertainment such as The Idlers, Caught In The Act, Greeley's Reel, and The Insiders. There was a lot of work put into our first show and we ended up with close to $4,000.00 raised for Daffodil Place.
On July 10th, The Dream Team held its 2nd show at Club One. They had entertainment from Caught In The Act, Kilkenny Krew, Daiman Follett and The Vibe and Blue Eyed Blonde. It was a fun night of music and friends and the team brought in another $3,800.00.
Our 3rd show was held May 14th at the Holiday Inn where we brought in close to $10,000.00 for Daffodil Place. We had music by the Vanier Choir, Leanne Kean, Kilkenny Krew, Siochana and DJ Baymen4life. There was also a large silent auction. This was our biggest show and we plan to keep going bigger and better!
We wanted our 4th show to be bigger and better....and it was! On June 4th, 2011 we held our 4 show at the Holiday Inn with the help of the Vanier Choir, Dan Ficken, YYT and The Masterless Men. The silent auction was much bigger and with the help of all the supporters, we brought in $17,000.00 from this show.
Our 5th show was May 26th 2012 and was our biggest show yet! We had entertainment by the Vanier Choir, Dan Ficken, YYT and The Navigators. We also had a 3 course meal and of course, silent auction. We brought in $18,000 from this show and it was all thanks to our sponsors and supporters!
We where so happy with how the entertainers, businesses and everyone from near and far responded to these events that we are now planning another concert.
The Daffodil Place Dream Show is on a $85,000.00 mission for Daffodil Place. We have all been touched by cancer and who wouldn't want to help such a great and amazing cause.
Please come out and support Daffodil Place and you will have the time of your life.
