Côte Saint-Luc launches fundraiser to help purchase baby grand piano

The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library has launched the 88 Keys to Music fundraising campaign to raise money to buy a baby grand piano for the Harold Greenspon Auditorium of the Bernard Lang Civic Centre.

Music lovers can sponsor one of the 88 keys of a piano keyboard. Each donation will be recognized on a plaque that will be permanently mounted at the entrance of the Harold Greenspon Auditorium. The cost to sponsor a key is $88. Corporate sponsors will also be recognized on the plaque for $500 contributions.

The baby grand piano will be used for programs held at the Harold Greenspon Auditorium, including Library concerts, Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society, and other groups.

“This is an opportunity to add your name or that of a loved one on a unique and permanent plaque,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, who holds the library and culture portfolio on council. “We also encourage businesses to be part of this initiative.”

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will also direct funds from the annual library book sale to help fund the baby grand piano.

“The new baby grand piano will be well-used and will enhance so many programs,” Library Director Janine West said. 

Donors can complete a donation form at the circulation desk of the library or download the PDF form at csllibrary.org/donations. The form includes space to add the name or names to appear on the plaque.

The completed form and cheque made payable to the City of Côte Saint-Luc can be returned to the circulation desk of the Library (5851 Cavendish Blvd.) or sent by mail to: 88 Keys to Music Campaign, Attention: Justin Burnham, 5851 Cavendish Boulevard, Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec, H4W 2X8. Tax receipts will be provided for donations.
