The 2017 MS Musical Christmas Card has come to an end.
The final week for listeners to request songs and donate money to the MS Society wrapped up Sunday.
The 620 CKRM Century Studio was brimming with musicians who streamed in throughout the event to bring Christmas joy to listeners.
Community Engagement Co-ordinator Erin McLellan says as of last Friday, a significant amount of money was raised.
“I think, in the past three weeks, on the Sundays, we’ve raised just over $6,000,” says McLellan. “We know that there’s gonna be more coming in today and in the coming days with some last minute donations.”
McLellan says the most important part of this initiative, which has been running for 29 years, is not the money it brings in, but the awareness it raises.
More than $12,000 was raised this year.
