Vancouver theatre program accepting donations in honour of Cory Monteith
TORONTO — Fans of Glee star Cory Monteith, who was found dead Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room, can honour him by supporting a community initiative that was close to his heart.
Donations in his name are being accepted at Project Limelight, an organization that provides performing arts experiences to children in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Monteith was instrumental in helping sisters Maureen Webb and Donalda Weaver launch Project Limelight.
A few nights before his death, the 31-year-old actor had dinner at East of Main Café (where profits are used to fund Project Limelight) with a group that included Webb, a casting director who encouraged a young Monteith to pursue acting.
Donations can be made through the Project Limelight website or by mail to: Project Limelight Society, 225 E. Georgia Street, Vancouver, B.C., V6A 1Z6.
