On Monday, September 17, 2012, David and Manjy Sidoo of Sidoo Family Giving attended the Arts Umbrella Surrey Centre Launch as special guests for their generous $20,000 donation to the program.
The Arts Umbrella program provides the highest quality visual and performing arts education to Metro Vancouver children and youth, regardless of their financial circumstances. For more than 33 years, Arts Umbrella operated from Granville Island; in January 2012, Arts Umbrella opened a new permanent facility in South Surrey; and in September 2012, Arts Umbrella opened their Surrey Centre facility. More than 30,000 children have been touched by Arts Umbrella programs.
The new Surrey Centre facility will enable the Arts Umbrella to deliver more arts programs to children and youth in the Surrey area.
David Sidoo, delighted to be in attendance and share the Sidoo Family Giving vision, spoke to event attendees and presented a $20K cheque to the Arts Umbrella organizers.
