Ignamo Homes are bringing their swinging brand of 1940s music and humour to the Rosehill Farm on August 5th.
Ignamo Home's next fundraiser will be a hootin' & hollerin' good time as they welcome Rosie and the Riveters.
They will be bringing their swinging brand of 1940s music and humour to the Rosehill Farm on August 5th.
Board Member Beth Taylor says the group seemed like a perfect fit for what Ingamo Homes is trying to accomplish.
"We decided that this was a really good fit for Ingamo Homes because Rosie the Riveter was a symbol of women taking charge of their lives and entering the workforce during the Second World War. She's an empowering figure."
Taylor also mentions how Rosie and the Riveters do their own part to empower women all over the world.
"They give 20% of every take at the door to give micro-loans to women around the world to start their lives, and we thought that was a great link with Ingamo too."
Executive Director of Ingamo Diane Harris says these women embody so much of what the organization tries to pass along to women and children who use their services.
"We did a rebranding of Ingamo and we used the poster of Rosie and the Riveters for the colours, the themes, and that strength. So when one of our fundraiser members came along and said, 'Hey this is a great link,' it just seemed like it dovetailed really, really well."
The concert will be at Rosehill Farm Weddings and Events (564962 Karn Road just west of Woodstock). All proceeds will support women's and children's programs at Ingamo Homes. Tickets are available at Merrifield Book Shop in Woodstock or Patina's Gifts in Ingersoll for $25 ahead of time. Tickets may also be available at the door for $30.
