Hey guys, just one story to discuss today, but this is for an EXTREMELY big cause! Please read this!
SooToday's Donna Hopper is helping organize a benefit concert event to help raise money for the Sault Ste. Marie branch of the Red Cross to donate to the relief efforts in Haiti following their devastating earthquake last week. This tragedy has been major news since it happened, and every dollar counts, so consider donating to Haiti!
But what is being worked out is a major event, called Algoma Hope4Haiti, which will feature numerous local bands playing on February 20th to raise money for Haiti relief. Unlike most attempts at a major concert/fundraiser involving local bands, this will take place at multiple local venues, which will each play host to different bands on that day. This is logistically easier, and it helps make the Haiti support more citywide, so there is benefits in this setup. Venues and performers have yet to be announced, they should come out once everything's finalized. Way too early to speculate or guess, but once I hear of bands, you'll know! Metal bands are likely, but this is a major charitable concert, even if there were none, this is still worth looking in to, Haiti needs your support above all else!
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale for Algoma Hope4Haiti on February 5th (two weeks from Friday), and they will cost $10 each. They will be on sale at all participating venues, the Canadian Red Cross office on Allard Street, and at the Sault Youth Association office, which is on the 6th floor of Station Tower on Bay Street. Having this ticket will ensure that you can get into any and all venues for Hope4Haiti, and as I previously said, all proceeds are going to The Red Cross to benefit Haiti.
IF YOU OR YOUR BAND ARE INTERESTED IN TAKING PART IN ALGOMA HOPE4HAITI ON FEBRUARY 20TH, E-MAIL email@example.com FOR INFORMATION! TO GET FULL DETAILS ON THIS VERY SPECIAL EVENT, CLICK HERE!
That's all I have, I just want to get advance notice of Hope4Haiti out there. No matter what bands are playing, this will be a very special event that we don't get often. As soon as details come in about participating venues and bands (particularly metal/hard rock bands, but any will get mentioned), you'll find details right here! Stay tuned, and please consider attending this!
