This September, Xenia Concerts Inc. and Sheena’s Place will be working together for the first time to present a concert at the idyllic Sheena’s Place house, located in the heart of Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood.
Sheena’s Place is a registered charity that offers hope and support to individuals, families, and friends affected by eating disorders. They provide a wide range of professionally facilitated support groups and services, including a number of Expressive Arts Groups that encourage participants to find their “voice” through various art mediums such as painting, writing, and music. All of their services are completely free of charge to their members.

We really value the work that is being done there and we look forward to connecting with and supporting this community!” says Laura Swankey.
