Blair We Care - Fundraiser

 

Bobby Cameron is organizing a fundraiser for Edmonton's music industry's Blair McEwan. Blair McEwen's journey back from a debilitating stroke he suffered in November of 2016 has been an incredibly difficult battle for him and his family. Left with limited speech and mobility with a paralyzed right arm and hand, Blair is in need of long-term care and will not be returning home. He was ripped by the roots from his work he had so passionately loved and torn from the life he built serving and protecting his family.

EDMONTON WOMEN OF SONG

Musicians band together for annual breast cancer fundraiser

By Andrea Wong

Breast cancer awareness month is quickly approaching, which means that a certain group of female artists will be returning to the stage October 1st, 2017. Mics in hand, instruments at the ready, and strong looks of determination on their faces, these united Women of Song stand for a cause resonating close to their hearts.

Sixteen years ago, Edmonton musician Sophie Hunter was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. What followed was a series of treatments so intense, Hunter wasn’t sure which would kill her first. But the spirited blues singer refused to lay down without a fight. After a long and hard battle, Hunter prevailed as a breast cancer survivor. Ignited with a sharper focus on life, she sought to do something about breast cancer that could couple her passion for music.

“What I wanted to do is make it easier for other people that have to go through what I went through,” Hunter says. “What better way to give back than with something you do naturally?”

With that in mind, Hunter formed the idea for a benefit concert to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research. She was quickly joined by six of her friends, all local musicians ranging from blues to old-school rock to everything in between. At the heart of this seasoned music collective is a deep-seated desire to contribute to a worthy cause.

Our story

In October 2013 the first Live Music for Charity event was held with over 200 people showing up and 18 amazing musicians sharing their talents in 3 popular bands. 

The bands are either currently popular or popular in their day.  Many of the musicians are professional musicians, some have not played for many years...it was wonderful to hear and see the hours and hours of rehearsing, reconnecting of friendships, coming together to entertain and share their love of music and give back to their community. Together, that evening, they raised $10,130 for the Stollery Children`s hospital foundation.
