Haitian Hearts Relief Concert This Sunday in Collingwood

You have an opportunity this Sunday, January 24th to be part of something very special right here in Collingwood.

An exciting line-up of local musicians are donating their time to put on The Haitian Hearts Relief Concert at Fairways on Balsam St/Highway 26 (in the plaza opposite Canadian Tire) from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. as an event to raise funds for disaster relief in Haiti.

The event has very quickly been put together by Fran and Anna Lee Webster who are two of the most generous and positive people I know.  In such a short time, they, together with Frank McNulty of JBJ Productions, have secured at least seven local bands and I’ll bet that number grows by Sunday.  John Nichols from the Peak fm radio station has agreed to host and the folks at Fairways have generously agreed to donate the space.  The Rotary Club of Collingwood will be on hand to handle receipt of donations.

So far, the line-up includes Fran and Anna Lee, The Webster family, the Funky Truths, Wayne Buttery and the Groove project, Aaron Garner, the Fig Leaf Jazz band, Lemon Pepper Pickerel, Frankie and the Favourites and Georgia Fox.

Admission is just $10.00 with 100% of the proceeds going to the relief fund.  There may also be a silent auction and all donations will be gratefully accepted.  I’ve also just heard that profits from food and drink sales that day will also be donated.  Wow.  Collingwood has heart.

Come and enjoy.  Listen to the music, dance, feel the energy.  I’ll be there on Sunday and hope to see you too.

UPDATE:  The event was a HUGE success with over $20,000 raised!  Monies are being directed through the Rotary Club to Shelter Box  Check out the concert video on You Tube
