Cambridge Coffee House Returns
Live music lovers – REJOICE! Cambridge Coffeehouse is returning to St. Mark’s, Winnipeg, on Saturday, February 4. We are looking forward to presenting another great evening of entertainment featuring our very own “House Blend” band along with other local performers.
The coffeehouse gets underway at 7:30 p.m. and usually finishes around 9:30 p.m. – lots of time either to get home before your regular bedtime or, if you are younger at heart, head off to another event.
As always, there is no admission charge with complimentary coffee and treats. It’s “Coffee with a Cause” though and so, net proceeds from free-will donations will be designated to the St. Mark’s Refugee Sponsorship Fund and be directed to assisting locally-sponsored new Canadian families.
Thank you for your continuing support. Looking forward to seeing you on February 4.
