Wood Gundy supports Nelson’s Kids Series

The employees of CIBC Wood Gundy in Nelson are supporting the annual Capitol Theatre Kid’s Series through the CIBC Children’s Foundation.

The employees of CIBC Wood Gundy in Nelson are supporting the annual Capitol Theatre Kid’s Series through the CIBC Children’s Foundation.

“This foundation’s focus is on programs or projects that enhance the health, education and well-being of children in Canada,” says Ed Mannings, CIBC Wood Gundy investment advisor.

The Foundation is funded through proceeds from CIBC Miracle Day, an annual event when CIBC’s wholesale banking sales and trading staff and Wood Gundy investment advisors donate their fees and commissions to support hundreds of children’s charities across Canada.

The Capitol Theatre’s children performance series offers a family-centred respite full of inspiration and creativity, a counterbalance to the iPod, iPad, video game, Facebook, Myspace and Google world. This Capitol Theatre program augments the annual summer youth education and mentoring program and the Christmas Pantomime, and it engages, enthrals and educates a young audience, building the next generation of theatre-lovers.

Upcoming is Axe Capoeira, Brazilian Dance, Music and Capoeira with high-flying acrobatics and invigorating music on Sunday, April 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 available at or by phone at 250-352-6363.

Check out the Capitol website for more information on the individual performances.
