Hark! The first annual DCCS Angel Chorus has arrived and is currently on display the Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts in downtown Dawson Creek. These angels, which were built following a call for submissions earlier this fall, are competing for a cash donation to the charity of their makers’ choice.
The way it works is as follows. Each angel has been handmade by a group or individual according to given criteria (must be over 3 feet tall, be free-standing, and must have wings). The angels were debuted on December 8th during the DCCS’s Handmade Christmas Festival, the first year for this event as well. Each angel has a jar for collections as the public votes on their favourite. At the end of the DCCS Gala Concert on December 21st, the angel who has collected the highest donations will be declared the winner. The winning angel will then gift 50% of total proceeds to its cause. The remaining 50% will be dedicated to expansion of DCCS programming and community outreach activities.
What happens to the angels after the event? Well, this is still up for debate. All angels will first be offered back to their creators. They may be donated back to DCCS for auction, or to their charity of choice.
