flood relief show will be held at Vangelis on Friday, July 5,
Calgary’s downtown core may be fully open, 12 days after flooding devastated the city. But there are still areas of Alberta where residents are left homeless.
On Friday, July 5, Vangelis and local promoters will be hosting a flood relief show for the city of Calgary, with all proceeds going to The Canadian Red Cross.
The show is $8, and attendees are encouraged to pitch in more.
The bands playing the benefit show are locals The Triplophonics, Bastard Poetry, Myles and The Blanks and Regina’s Black Thunder.
Sponsors such as Underground Cafe will also be donating to a raffle that will be held during the show.
Similarly, this past weekend saw TurboFest, which had bands such as Trigger Effect and Royal Red Brigade take the stage, donating the proceeds from their two shows to the Red Cross. It was a killer time, so thanks much for that.
Ominocity would like to give a shout-out to anyone who lends a hand in providing relief for flood victims. Cheers!
Saskatoon pitches in
There are plenty of other locals pitching in a hand as well.
Paul and Jerry with Royal LePage have set up a semi truck at the Stonebridge WalMart today (Tuesday, July 2) from 9am until 9pm to collect donations for the Calgary Food Bank.
The pair encourage anyone to come drop off items such as bottled water, non-perishable food items: canned goods, condiments, baking items (flour, etc.), house supplies (garbage bags, etc.), personal hygiene items and pet food.
