Thanks to all the performers and community members for an awesome evening last night at the PWIP Open Mic and Fun-Raiser, held at Mississauga Celebration Square, Glass Pavilion!

It was an amazing event with over 50 people in attendance! Folks shared their hidden (and not so hidden) talents, gave generously to the space, donated, shared food and got to speak to other community members they may not have know.

What a great way to get Pride season going!

Thanks again to the Art gallery of Mississauga for the support and space.
