The Pearls of Polynesia were thrilled to be part of the Femme Fatale Carnivale  Performance at Dickens Pub in support of The Marsha Ellen Meidow Foundation, which aims to get women and youth off the streets and out of abusive environments. Marsha passed away in 2010. She was a well known and cherished activist and humanitarian in Calgary, with much of her time being devoted to various women’s causes. The event is put on by her friends and family, determined to keep her legacy alive.  The Pearls were pleased to be part of the great lineup of acts.  Wonderful photos of the event were taken by photographer Mark Engel.
