Posted by Admin on November 24, 2016 in News

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Mosaic for Mental Health Fundraiser was held at the Craig Gallery in Alderney Landing on the evening of October 13, 2016. This year’s fundraiser was even more financially successful than last year’s event. Over 800 pieces of artwork created by 300+ professional/amateur artists were on sale for $25./each with the majority being sold.  The Nova Scotia Society of Occupational Therapists (NSSOT) was a major sponsor of the event with a $1,000. donation to this very deserving community organization. On hand for the Opening Reception was Chris McWilliam, CMHA (past) Board Member and occupational therapist, Genea Teskey who is the Executive Director of NSSOT, and Carmel O’Keefe, occupational therapist. The evening was very well attended and media were on hand for interviews and photos with the CMHA community members and artists.
