Country artist collects 1000 coats!! 

This past December country artist Elyse Saunders could be seen dropping off gently used and new coats to agencies that provide for children, youth and adults in Mississauga and Oshawa. After hearing of the need for winter coats in communities and many not being able to afford the cost of buying one, Elyse wanted to use her platform with the help of her peers to bring people together through music and give back. November 27th Elyse hosted her 4TH annual WARM COATS WARM HEARTS Coat Drive & Concert at The Corral in Oshawa ON. She received support from her country music pals with special performances and KX96 radio host Peter Walker was the emcee. WARM COATS WARM HEARTS collected 500 coats in 2014 and Elyse is excited to announce that she reached her goal of 1000 coats for 2015. The concert was one of the many collaborative efforts that made this goal a reality, donations were not only given to Oshawa residence but to many Mississauga schools this year as well. Elyse very much appreciates the support she had from the ladies of Fight The Cold who helped make this possible. This January another event is in the works to celebrate and commence the 4th annual WARM COATS WARM HEARTS Coat Drive & Concert. 


Elyse heads home for Country 105 Miracle Toy Drive 

This past weekend Elyse headed home to support Country 105.1's annual live to air Miracle Broadcast. Elyse performed an acoustic version of "Reach Out It's Christmas" normally a duet with TJ King and talked about the toy drive she helped to organize this past December at Bourbon Barrel Saloon. After running into Train Wreck member Daryl at the CCMA's this past September Elyse wanted to collaborate on something special. Train Wreck and Elyse Saunders hosted a toy drive at The Bourbon Barrel Saloon in Peterborough. Peterborough's country music community came together and were able to give back over $1000 worth in toys for the annual Country 105 Miracle Toy Drive. It was a full night of music and fun including acoustic performances by Kansas Stone, Cold Creek County, Alyssa Morrissey, Jesse Slack, James Barker and Nikki & Keith from Western Avenue. Havelock Jamboree donated a pair of camping passes and the band Train Wreck and Elyse finished up the night as the nightly entertainment. Elyse was very excited to be performing back in her hometown!
