Event description

Description

Support your watershed and celebrate the season!

The Athabasca Watershed Council (AWC) is proud to be celebrating 10 years of protecting and promoting the Athabasca watershed.

This year’s gala marks a special milestone for the AWC and honours the great work that has been done to champion our amazing watershed. We have planned a very festive event that takes inspiration from our Members and supporters and will feature a silent auction, dinner, live entertainment by The Torpedos, and much more!

Bring an unwrapped gift for a child or teen for an extra entry to our Door Prize draw, supporting Santas Anonymous in Athabasca.

Proceeds from our Gala will go towards supporting our projects in the watershed, including:

  • Indigenous Outreach & Relationship Building
  • Documentary Film on Watershed
  • Youth Programs
  • Supporting Stewardship Groups
  • Supporting Citizen Science Programs
  • Educational Workshops and Stakeholder Conferences


The Torpedoes

The Torpedoes have been described as Northern Alberta’s finest classic rock band. Formed in Lac La Biche in 1993 when Lionel Peterson (guitar), Brian Deheer (bass, vocals) and Rick Hemmaway (guitar & vocals) met in Lac La Biche through Lionel’s brother Neil, the band’s original drummer. Twenty-six years later they’re still going strong, with drummer Vaughn to complete the group.

The Torpedoes do a lively combination of classic rock, country, blues, and other danceable and entertaining styles (e.g. rockabilly, reggae, punk, calypso, cajun). A Torpedoes show offers a treat of high-energy classics, with the sounds of CCR, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Steve Miller, Bryan Adams & Tom Petty, among others. Also known for their harmony vocals, this is a band in which all the members sing.
