For Immediate Release: March of Dimes Canada’s Rock for Dimes Halifax fundraiser has become an annual fixture in the city, and it’s always a great time.

Moving to Casino Nova Scotia this year, RFD Halifax featured local bands Fishy Business, Terminal Road, The Showcase Showdowns, Verdant Places, the Goldilocks Effect, and Red C.

Our celebrity judges included: Anna Zee (Q104), Brandon Mooney (Heartsparks Music Therapy), Michael Campbell (Program Director at The Carleton and Artistic Director of the Halifax Urban Folk Festival), and Dave Carroll (Sons of Maxwell). 

The evening was hosted by Tom Bedell, of Q104, and Sarah Ritchie, from Global. 

Congratulations to our top fundraiser, Red C, and The Goldilocks Effect, who was crowned the best band of 2018!

Altogether, the event raised more than $30,000 for our Conductive Education and Nova Scotia Aphasia Camp​ programs.
