This month we are raising money for Big Brothers And Big Sisters of Cornwall & District. It’s an all ages acoustic event. Doors are at 6pm, music starts at 6:30pm, and the show will finish just before 10pm.
Bands and musicians playing are Melanie and The General Electryk, Tracy Lalonde and Matthew Bell, Geneviève Lacroix, Kerry Helmer (playing a djembe), Second Label, Tommy Heatley, and host Jason Setnyk performing as well.
Now a little bit about Big Brothers and Big Sisters: Mentoring is about the power of friendship. The volunteers and young people in these programs experience the magic of everyday moments when they are shared with a friend. Everyone needs someone to laugh with, share a dream with, and just hang out with friends it’s the little things that mean the most. Big Brothers and Big Sisters help youth.
Rock for Charity, created and hosted by Jason Setnyk, raises money each month for a different charity or non profit organizations that contributes to making Cornwall Ontario a better place. Previous Rock for Charity events have raised money for the Tri County Literacy Council, The Agape, the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery, and the Parade of Nations cultural festival.
Cafe Connectionz located at 407 Water Street is a great hub for local art, an awesome local business, and a perfect host for these events. Enjoy fair trade coffee, delicious desserts, and a great vibe!
