Funds We Have Raised


Ride the Wave Volume 1
The first Ride the Wave' CD was released in 2010. Half the proceeds ($ 40,000) went to benefit the Coalition for Protection of Children. The charity implemented a school breakfast programme in several schools after it was discovered that many children were coming to school hungry (CPC’s “Breakfast for Every Child”). The album was also meant to help Bermuda's musical community. The other half of the proceeds went directly to the artists on it.

"This one of a kind album honours the hidden treasures of this small island" -- M. Freisenbruch
"The arts do need help in Bermuda" -- T. Brannon

"If the community at large is able to offer support for the Island’s lesser privileged children then maybe, just maybe, we can begin to turn the tide for the future or at least have a very beneficial impact on the lives of many" -- T. Brannon
