Musicians on a mission. Two Canadian musicians have put together an ambitious and creative plan to help local charities.
Brooks Robinson and Dennis Carmichael have gotten many requests for charity gigs and they liked the idea of ‘paying it forward.’
The two performers will help raise money for 21 charities over a span of 21 days, in 21 different venues. This amazing networking and musical marathon will conclude on the evening of their 21st performance with a charity gala at The Academy Theatre.
Robinson and Carmichael and their full band, Boots of Hazard, will see their own personal fundraising efforts donated to the Academy Theatre in Lindsay.
Each of the 21 Charities involved will host an approximately 60-90 minute performance to celebrate their involvement in the 21 Charities campaign. Robinson and Carmichael will MC and perform at each event as they work towards their goal of 21shows in a row.
A spokesperson from each charity will make a brief statement at the final Gala event. There will be a silent auction where one item from each charity will be displayed in the theatre on the night of the Gala. Each charity will keep the funds raised for their own item. A 50/50 draw will also be held at the gala that will see the monies split between the Academy Theatre and the winning ticket holder.
Robinson and Carmichael with their band Boots of Hazard along with some very special guests will provide entertainment for the evening of the gala at the Academy Theatre. Robinson says they “want to challenge other musicians and entertainers who may be interested to do the same thing.”
“We would be more than willing to help anyone who might want to do this.” For information visit 21 Charities here.
