Please help us help the kids by contributing to one of our three charities that help the young people across our region during these difficult times. With Covid-19 our our kids are going through a lot right now, especially with what is effectively renewed school cancellations. A prolonged suppression of their youthful energy and spirit. That’s a lot to handle at a young age and I think perhaps too much to ask of them – Scott Higgins


Get ready Waterloo Region! On Family Day 2021, the 110 Percent Youth Talent Festival is bringing together some incredible teen musicians, dancers, singers, artists and many more talented youth for a virtual afternoon of entertainment, hope and celebration. The 110 Percent Youth Talent Festival is a collaboration between HIP Developments, Tapestry Hall, E- Bolt Music and Straight Street Event Services, in partnership with student bodies from across the region.

As part of the virtual festival, viewers will have an opportunity to donate to three charities that help young people across our region: Kidsability, Big Brothers Big Sister of Waterloo Region and Kinbridge. These three charities focus on making the lives of our youth better. 

On top of public donations, as part of the festival HIP Developments has donated $10,000 to E-Bolt Music to pay for continued music lessons for kids that otherwise couldn’t afford to right now.

“We have talented and aspiring musicians in Waterloo Region. We have some, that because of COVID, can’t afford the mentoring and lessons to keep going. We have some, because of COVID, who may have diminished their creative spark. HIP Developments couldn’t stand by and watch that happen,” said Higgins.

“We are immensely grateful for the support from HIP Developments and the community, as this helps ensure that 2021 can be a renewing year of growth for youth in music and the 110 Percent Youth Talent Festival is such a beautiful way to reopen the doors to performance and creativity,” said Eric Bolton, owner of E-Bolt Music. “Just announcing this to a few of our students has already been so incredible as we witness this spark of energy and excitement from them in response. This is so needed, far beyond words.”
