Annual battle of the bands raises over $19,000 for Londoners with disabilities

For Immediate Release – If you weren’t at London's Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn and Conference Centre for the 12th annual Rock for Dimes London, you missed a great night.

Six local performers – Chase Drew, Oui B. Jamon, Electric Popsicle, Pit Crew, Bad Posture, and The RJ Conspiracy – put on a terrific show to support March of Dimes Canada. 

Judges Dan Wiley, Colin Stewart, Jim McCormick, and John Pare crowned Bad Posture London’s best corporate band.

The event raised over $19,000, all of which will benefit MODC programs for children and adults with disabilities. 
‘London really came through for us this year,’ said Mary Lynne Stewart, National Director of Fund Development and Communications for MODC. ‘It always does. That’s why we’ve been coming back for the last twelve years. In that time, the city has raised more than $100,000, and all of it has gone to MODC programs. So thank you, London.’
