Event description
Brent's Jam for ALS is a benefit concert fundraiser in memory of our friend and family member, Brent Brown.

About this Event

Brent's Jam is an all-ages benefit concert in memory of Brent Brown, a lifelong Saskatchewan resident and musician. Brent was diagnosed with ALS in the fall of 2008. Despite this terrible diagnosis, he always kept his sense of humour and positive spirit. His strength in the face of his battle with ALS was an inspiration to all who knew him. Brent passed away in February of 2011, but remains forever in our hearts.

It is important to us as his family members and friends to keep Brent's memory alive. In 2013, we decided to establish a biennial benefit concert for ALS research and support, because Brent loved music and was a talented guitar player. He played professionally for much of his life and was a part of a number of Saskatchewan bands. Many of the musicians that you see onstage at this event were his former bandmates and friends.

The 2019 Jam is the fourth Brent's Jam for ALS, with previous jams occurring in 2013, 2015, and 2017. Funds raised from these events have benefitted several different charities, such as the ALS Society of Canada (for ALS research) and Kinsmen Telemiracle (who provided Brent with specialized equipment). In total, previous jams have raised a total of nearly $20,000. We hope to go even higher this year!

Our recipient charity for the 2019 Brent's Jam is the ALS Society of Saskatchewan, which provides support to individuals within Saskatchewan who are diagnosed with ALS. The ALS Society of Saskatchewan has become very active in the province in recent years. We are proud of what they have accomplished and are so pleased to support them through this event. If you'd like to learn more about this amazing group, please visit their website at www.alssask.ca.

Thank you in advance for your support of this event. We look forward to rocking out with you on April 6, 2019!
