Description

Join BANC on Wednesday, October 23rd at Hotel Arts for an exclusive fundraising concert in support of North America’s first chair in Pediatric Psychosocial Oncology and Survivorship.

Housed at the University of Calgary, this chair will help kids during and after treatment, supporting them and their families as they build happier and healthier lives. Creating a Centre of Excellence in research and new therapies at the Cumming School of Medicine is a cause spearheaded by Jim and Tracey Button whose family has dealt with a host of challenges throughout their journey with Jim’s renal cell carcinoma. They understand through experience the important role that psychosocial oncology has in wellness.

To assist with Jim and Tracey's fundraising efforts, BANC (Benevolent Artists National Charity) is performing gratis for this concert. While there is no cost to attend, we are asking couples, companies and individuals to make a financial commitment to this Chair commensurate to their financial means. Please RSVP your attendance via EventBrite and bring your ticket(s) along with an envelope containing a cheque addressed to the University of Calgary with “Pediatric Psychosocial Oncology Chair” noted in the memo line. You can also learn more about the chair, donate online, and/or make a multi-year financial commitment by visiting http://bit.ly/2o0W7AMButtonFamily. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt through the University of Calgary.

BANC is a charity-focused band of world-class singers and musicians led by Jim Carter that has raised over $3.3M over the last four years through its charity concerts and live auction events. BANC’s goal is to raise over $10M for charity by 2021/22. Learn more about BANC here:http://bit.ly/2mTYWmPBANCVideo.

On October 23rd, BANC’s roster will be Sass Jordan, Ellis Hall (Tower of Power), Jim Carter, Erin Carter, Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, The Guess Who), Derek Sharp and Will Evankovich (The Guess Who), Pat Steward (Bryan Adams, The Odds) and producer Steve Rokosh. They’re all in it for the charity, the music and the fun.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and BANC will hit the stage at 8 p.m. in the Spectrum Ballroom at Hotel Arts. There will be light refreshments served as well as a cash bar serving up tasty Village Brewery Beer & Cider among other drinks.

Philanthropy can be fun and BANC is the right crew to turn the dial up to 11 for a good time and a worthwhile cause.
