Caper Radio is beyond pleased about the landslide success that was Destigmatize! The fundraiser brought in close to 4000 dollars, to be donated to the mental health unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. There was so much hard work put in to this event by so many wonderful people and so much great music played to an enthusiastic crowd. The atmosphere was fun and inspiring throughout the entire show and Caper Radio is very happy to have taken part and extremely thankful to everyone who made the day possible, (in particular, our favorite intern, Victoria Chapman) as well as everyone who came out, donated and had a great time!
