NYCGB Alumni Christmas Appeal 2018 In 2018 you turned your fivers into tenors! (and sopranos and altos and basses) In December 2018 the Alumni Champions Committee aimed to raise £15,000 for the Alumni Champions Fund through their 2018 Christmas Appeal. We are delighted to report that through the generosity of alumni, our two Winter Walkers (Lizzie & Katy), alumni friends and families and a mystery match donor our Alumni raised a staggering £17,244 in December 2018. 100% of this total raised was awarded to 17 NYCGB members who required financial assistance to participate in NYCGB's 2019 residential courses and concerts. I would not be able to take part in these incredible courses at all without financial support. These courses have taught me so much and given me so many opportunities which I could never otherwise have. I feel so lucky to be able to learn and sing with such talented girls, teachers and people working in the music industry. I cannot express how grateful I am to be part of such an amazing group of people. These courses are the highlight of my year! Thank you so, so much!!! Thank you for all of your incredible support and most generous donations. The NYCGB Alumni Champions Fund Christmas Appeal is an official Giving Tuesday partner.
