    LAO Virtual Fundraiser 

    Challenge 2021 - Concert 


    The Lymphedema Association of Ontario is celebrating our

     2021 Virtual Fundraiser  DONATE NOW! 

    Join us for the final virtual event for CHALLENGE: LYMPHEDEMA to celebrate and wrap up 30 days of activity challenge! We had dozens of participants and donors who we would like to honor on Thursday, October 28th @ 7PM at a live concert via Zoom with performances by

    Carol, Penelope Rodrigo, Sasha Laine, and Alec Steinwall

    A draw will be held for all those that participated in the fundraiser! As well as a special drawing for our leading donors and teams. 

    We are offering this event for free to all, but would appreciate a donation to enable us to meet our goal. Any donations over $20 will generate a charitable tax receipt. And of course we encourage all to share the event with everyone they know to attend!

I have been active as a chorister in numerous community, Church and small Opera companies. Since retirement, after 32 years of vocal music teaching in elementary schools, I have continued to sing and study to remain active and up- to- date, with regards to my skill set.

    I'm passionate about helping women recover their lives after breast cancer, and hair loss at my shop CHANGES FOR YOU, in Newmarket. My own journey with cancer was to recover from Melanoma. I spend my leisure time with music and art. I started performing with a rock and roll band for several years. Today I play piano and keyboards and sing a mix of Jazz and pop.

With the help of MUCHFACT, and EMI Canada, their first music video “Blanket”, launched. It was on Much Music, MTV2, Juice and others. After spending 5 years with the girl group, Sasha felt it was best to go solo. Sasha started posting covers of popular songs reaching hundreds of thousands of view.
