ALGMS is an artist development bursary created in memory of the late Amy Louie, a member of the family that has owned Grossman’s Tavern in Toronto since 1975.
Each year, the bursary provides a musician or band from the Greater Toronto Area $2000 to help with career development. There is a secondary prize of $1000 for the runner-up.
An annual fundraiser event is presented at Grossman’s Tavern every September. This fundraiser helps to generate money for the bursary and serves as an award ceremony for the year’s successful applicant. Admission by donation (Min $20 suggested)
