YYC Rocks for Recovery
Sun, 16 Oct 2016, 12:00 PM – Mon, 17 Oct 2016, 2:00 AM MDT
TLB Group, in collaboration with the local music community, supporters and sponsors is pleased to present YYC Rocks for Recovery. A minimum $10 donation at the door gains you access to over 20 bands playing throughout the day and evening. This fundraiser will provide 100% of the proceeds to the Oxford House. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Oxford House, which would cover the cost of 5 residents for a year.
Oxford House Foundation of Canada is a non-profit organization that provides peer-supported sober recovery homes for men and women who have a history of substance abuse and are homeless or at risk of homelessness. By providing a safe and stable environment where men and women can focus on their recovery, Oxford House supports individuals to develop the skills necessary for self-sufficiency and successful reintegration back into society. Today, Oxford House has 28 recovery homes operating in Calgary and Edmonton. (5 women’s homes, 23 men’s homes, including 4 homes designated as Aboriginal homes).
In addition to raising funds at the door for this event, we will be collecting food donations for the food bank. We are seeking donations for a live auction and raffle items. All proceeds from the auction will go to Oxford House and money raised through raffle items will be given to the Food Bank. Please contact us at email@example.com or message one of the organizers if you have anything to donate.
Come on out to a fantastic venue and have a taste of some of what Calgary has to offer in our amazing Local Music Scene, while supporting a great cause! We look forward to seeing you there to show your support for not only the live music scene, but for the worthwhile causes.
