It's Better Two Give Sure Thing

When: Wed., Dec. 23, 8 p.m. 2009
Price: $5, plus a non-perishable food item
It's that charitable time of year, and local guys Kris Pope and Morgan MacDonald want you to join them at a live music fundraiser for the Sackville Rivers Association and FEED NS. "I've gotten this idea from my mother, where instead of buying gifts for family we're donating money to non-profit organizations and doing it on behalf of family members," says Pope, adding that this fundraiser is part of his contribution. Musicians Kev Corbett, Steve Gates, The Youngest Daughters, Zac Crouse, Don Brownrigg, Jon Bryant, Joyce Saunders, Glen Fraser, Victoria Parker and Don MacKay will provide the entertainment, as long as you bring $5 and a canned good. Money that goes to the SRA will help fund education, restocking the river with salmon and protecting the river. Local artist James Farrell will also have a "protecting the water"-themed painting up for grabs if you buy a ticket for the draw. –Holly Gordon
