Meota Musical Productions Donates to Healthcare

October 29th 2019

Meota Musical Productions are proud to acknowledge two successful and fun-filled evenings of entertainment featuring the Golden Oldies.  The program consisted of music from the 50s, 60s & 70s with costumed performers Elton John, Neil Diamond, Dolly Parton, K.D. Lang, Glenn Campbell, Janis Joplin, Kenny Rogers, Mary Hopkins and The Beach Boys.  A wide variety of musical accompaniment made the show spectacular.  Shows were held on August 4th in Meota with a second concert in Battleford on September 28th.


The August 4th concert was a sold out event and raised $6,839.50 for Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation.  The Battleford concert raised $15,934.00.  Hope of Life; a non-profit charity in Guatemala received 50% of the proceeds.  This charity builds homes and helps the needy in Guatemala.  The other 50% was donated to BUH Foundation to support BUH Foundation’s 2019/2020 “Ready. Set. Baby!”  Capital Campaign to raise over $160,000 to purchase new fetal monitors and birthing beds for BUH’s Labour & Delivery Unit.  Sue Pruden-McIvor and Dianne Becotte organized, sold tickets and prepared supper for 300 guests that attended this event in September.


We are grateful for those who attended in support of both causes.  Thank you to the many businesses that supported both events with “silent auction” items.  We are grateful to the performers, musicians and volunteers who have raised a total of $14,806.50 for BUH Foundation.   The selfless giving and love of music by performers was appreciated, and our community is drawn together in the spirit of goodwill.
