Join these ear pleasing musicians as they gather for an intimate and informal exposure of their work for one night only.
Jeff Parry Promotions started Musicians Care for Kids with support from the Calgary Entrepreneurs Organization in 2010. Over the past three years the event has raised over $60,000 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary. This will mark the second year that 100% of the net proceeds will go to the Avenue 15 program. This program provides homeless and runaway youth ages 12 to 17 with temporary shelter and basic needs, as well as comprehensive support system to assist them in reuniting with their families or find alternative living arrangements. A great night to celebrate Canadian music to support the children of Calgary!
Jeff Parry Promotions, Annerin Productions and the Calgary Entrepreneurs Organization appreciate any donation to Musicians Care for Kids. For fund/designation, please choose ‘Musicians Care for Kids’
