Wild Heart auction returns

Georgia Murray, the Port McNeill-raised singer/songwriter, is back with her second online auction to fund the North Island youth choir.

Georgia Murray, the Port McNeill-raised singer/songwriter and co-founder of the Wild Heart Music Program, is back with her second online auction to fund the North Island youth choir.

Prizes include everything from resort stays to return airfare to a dinner with her brother, singer Clifton Murray of the Juno-winning Tenors.

Wild Heart Music was conceived to provide a music program free to local youth after cuts to school budgets eliminated band and choir programs in schools.

Murray’s first online auction, in 2012, raised more than $20,000 to provide seed money for the program, which began in January of 2013 and which is wrapping up its second year in Port McNeill.

Offshoot programs have started up in Port Hardy and Sointula.

The auction closes this Sunday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m.

Auction items can be viewed and bids placed at georgiamurray.net/auction.
