SURREY â€” Canadian pop-country queen Shania Twain will be at a Surrey elementary school next week to officially launch her foundation’s latest "club house."
The private event will involve Shania Kids Can Foundation, The Dilawri Foundation and Surrey Board of Education "as they officially launch Western Canadaâ€™s first Shania Kids Can program," according to a media advisory.
"Shania Twain will interact with students, tour the new clubhouse and share stories about why she started the Kids Can Foundation," according to the advisory.
The Shania Kids Can Foundation’s vision is to "provide children who are at risk of losing their opportunity to be the best they can be, because they are suffering from poverty, disregard, abuse or an overall dysfunctional family lifestyle, the chance to overcome the effects that these challenges may be having on their ability to function at an optimum level during the school day," according to the organization’s website.
"We build, furnish and hire support staff to run the new program," the website says. "We hire qualified staff, furnish the designated program space (referred to as the SKC Clubhouse), procure food and nutrition supplies as well as recreational equipment and office supplies for the new program."
Twain brings her "Rock This Country" tour to Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on Sunday and Tuesday (June 7 and 9).
