Toronto’s Big Battle of the Corporate Bands!
Members of Toronto’s corporate community play "Rock Star" to raise money for a great cause.
For the eighth straight year, Toronto’s top business executives are trading in their suit and ties for ripped jeans and guitars at the Rock for Dimes fundraiser.
On Thursday, June 7th six bands featuring groups comprised of Toronto business professionals will shake Club 279 at the Hard Rock Cafe to raise an estimated $20,000 for children with physical disabilities.
The bands will compete for bragging rights as Toronto’s best corporate band, at the same time showcasing their talents to music industry professionals. Maie Pauts, on-air personality from media sponsor Boom 97.3 will be pulling double duty as emcee and judge, and will be joined by David Bajurney of the Orange Record Label and producer, musician and artist rep Andy Curran.
Oui B. Jamon, Trading Hearts, OIAM, Earth Shine, Collateral Attack and Superfire will do battle at the event.
All proceeds benefit March of Dimes Canada’s Conductive Education® (CE) program and specifically the Academy of Conductive Education. CE is an innovative program that blends elements of education and rehabilitation to improve the independence, mobility and confidence of children with disabilities, and has been especially beneficial to children with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and developmental apraxia.
"Our Conductive Education program is one of the largest of its kind in the world and we serve hundreds of children and adults. Our program helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem," says Mary Lynne Stewart, Director of Fund Development and Communications.
The event is sponsored by FMC Law, AMG Medical Supplies, ReliAble Independent Living Services, A Supreme Nursing, Long & McQuade, Dave Gillespie Photography, Hard Rock Cafe and media sponsor Boom 97.3.
