ABOUT LISA

This annual event is dedicated to Lisa Carragher who passed away suddenly a couple of years ago.  Lisa was an educator who always went above and beyond, especially when it came to children.  The red nose symbolizes a technique she would use when trying to incorporate humour into her lessons and get kids back on task.  She had an impact on so many children, both here on PEI and in Nunavut, that it seemed appropriate to host a youth talent show to honour two things that her children, Logan and Brooke, have identified as important to her; children and music.

All funds raised from this event will be donated to a cause near and dear to Lisa's heart; the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).  Donations made to CMHA-PEI Division stay in the province in support of mental health programs and services for Islanders.  To learn more about what they do, please visit www.pei.cmha.ca.
