Rock for Dimes Vancouver 2017


 

VANCOUVER ROCKS FOR MARCH OF DIMES CANADA!


If you weren’t one of the 140 people at the Red Room Ultra Bar, you missed the showdown of the year.

Five local bands – The Fallen Angels, Big Back Yard & Co, The Ringtones, Deeter Dives For Donuts, and No Reply – rocked for an enthusiastic audience and a panel of celebrity judges, all to support March of Dimes Canada.

It was a tough decision but, in the end, Big Back Yard & Co. won the coveted title of Vancouver’s best corporate band.

Altogether, the event raised $10,000, all of which will benefit MODC programs for children and adults with disabilities. The money stays here in Vancouver, supporting Stroke Recovery Canada® and Conductive Education®

This was also the second year in a row that MODC ran its Assistive Mobile Technology Initiative (AMTI) in Vancouver. Fourdeserving recipients will receive a customized tablet loaded with apps chosen to address their specific needs and to help them live more independently.

Our very generous sponsors are: Airgo, Long&McQuade, Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund, Agency 50, 96.9 Jack FM, Global Vancouver, and The Red Room Ultra Bar.
