Shuswap Performing Arts Centre has won a spot in the semifinal round in Aviva Canada’s Community Fund.
The final voting round is Dec. 1 to 10 and voters are needed.
Aviva Canada supports community projects through a fund of $1 million every year.
Shuswap Performing Arts Centre answered the company’s call for ideas and, in the third round, received more than 3,100 votes and 733 supporters.
Voting for the semi-finalist round runs Dec. 1 to 10.
“Voting every day by supporters is key to landing the Shuswap Performing Arts Centre in the final top 40 ideas,” says Shuswap Society for Arts & Culture Society board member Kari Wilkinson. “Each finalist will receive $5,000.”
Then it’s out of the public’s hand. Final judging takes place by Aviva judges and the idea could be awarded as much as $100,000.
Three local Aviva Insurance broker partners have given their support to this idea, something that is noted on the Aviva website.
“The Aviva Community Fund is all about making a difference by supporting what matters most to Canadians, helping passionate people make positive change in their community,” says Wilkinson.
“The Shuswap Society for the Arts & Culture is passionate that Salmon Arm deserves a performing arts centre and is working towards achieving that dream.”
Money received from Aviva will go towards completing a well-researched business plan which would include an economic impact study, as well as capital and operating plans – all required to secure the land required for the project.
