Montreal executives play “Rock Star” to raise money for families with disabilities at the seventh annual Rock for Dimes.
Join Montreal’s top executives as they take to the stage at the seventh annual Rock for Dimes Battle of the Bands fundraising event.
Five bands will shake the Theatre Corona on Saturday, November 16, 2013 with the goal of raising an estimated $15,000 for families living with physical disabilities.
MTL, The Sharx, PS, Exiled on the Main and Nobody’s Business will be competing for bragging rights as Montreal’s best corporate band. CHOM FM’s Jason Rockman will be the evening’s host, and former music producer Peter Alves, musician Andrew Schwartz, William Pearl of AMG Medical Supplies will be on hand as judges.
In addition to the music, guests will enjoy food and the chance to win fabulous prizes. All proceeds benefit March of Dimes Canada’s programs and services for people with disabilities.
Pennzoil is the presenting sponsor for Rock for Dimes fundraisers in 2013, partnering with March of Dimes Canada to donate $65,000, $15,000 of which will be used to retrofit a vehicle.
“Freedom is a sentiment closely associated with the ability to drive an automobile. Yet, this freedom can be taken away if one has disabilities and cannot drive a standard automobile. Pennzoil supports organizations like March of Dimes Canada, which are dedicated to helping people with disabilities regain mobility and freedom,” says Bree Sandlin, Pennzoil Global Brand Manager.
“We couldn’t be more excited about staging Rock for Dimes again in Montreal,” says Mary Lynne Stewart, Director of Fund Development and Communications for March of Dimes Canada. “The Montreal community is so supportive, and I am confident that Rock for Dimes will be even more successful this year.”
Pennzoil is the presenting sponsor. Additional sponsors include Delmar, Dundee Capital Markets, PF Changs, Montreal Stroke Club Chapter, Scodesign, Airgo Mobility and Long & McQuade.
