“I’m speechless with the generosity of Global Spectrum at Budweiser Gardens to support kids who would not normally have the opportunity to participate in the programs that Arts for All Kids offers. It’s an honour that leaves me speechless”, said Karen Pincombe, Founder and Director of Arts for All Kids.
“To know that there is an established organization like Global Spectrum at Budweiser Gardens helping other organizations within the community and reaching such a grass roots program for children with special needs is overwhelming”, said Murray Howard, President of the George Bray Sports Association

In consultation with The London Community Foundation we were able identify two great organizations. We are very grateful to the community for all their support and generosity.” said Brian Ohl, Global Spectrum’s Vice President and General Manager of Budweiser Gardens.
