Sponsor of the Week: Newfoundland PowerMay 18, 2010
The 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival would not be possible without the support of our corporate and media sponsors. To show our appreciation for their support, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues will be showcasing a different sponsor each week. This week’s Sponsor of the Week is Newfoundland Power.
