Rocky Horror Halloween Bash: Seventh Annual Halifax Rock for Dimes – October 25, 2012
October 22, 2012
Event date: Thursday, October 25, 2012 – 07:00
Location: Cunard Centre – 961 Marginal Road, Halifax
On Thursday October 25, 2012, local amateur musicians will once again take up their rock instruments to battle for the title of “Halifax’s Best Band” and raise much-needed money for Nova Scotians with physical disabilities. Over $120,000 has been raised to date by March of Dimes Canada at this annual rocking event in Halifax. The previous two year’s “Retro 80s” and “Canada Rocks vs Britain Rocks” events at the World Trade Convention Centre were two of the biggest and best Rock for Dimes events across Canada in March of Dimes Canada history. We’re hoping the 7th year will make it even bigger and better!
This year’s costume-musical theme for the “two stages” event will be a Rocky Horror Halloween Bash. An excellent opportunity to dust off your creative and spectacular Halloween costumes for this one! The Battle will focus on Dance Music and the bands will include only lawyers, for the first time in several years!
The Rock for Dimes Battle of the Bands will take place at the CUNARD CENTRE, on Marginal Road, with lots of parking for everyone.
The confirmed bands who are raising funds for March of Dimes include: Red C (McInnes Cooper), Project 501 (Stewart McKelvey), last year’s Big Winners Terminal Road (N.S. Department of Justice), Gene (government and private lawyers), The Goldilocks Effect (Burchells LLP). All members of these five bands are lawyers from the Halifax legal community, competing as “rock-star-wannabes” for a really great charitable cause. Best NS bar event of the year!
Halifax Rock for Dimes benefits March of Dimes Canada’s Conductive Education (CE) Nova Scotia Program, which helps children and adults in our province. CE is an innovative program that blends elements of education and rehabilitation to improve the independence, mobility and confidence of children with disabilities, and has proven especially beneficial to children with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and developmental apraxia. March of Dimes Canada is a nationally registered charitable organization providing support services to people with disabilities, their families and caregivers across Canada. In 2010, November 2nd became March of Dimes Conductive Education Awareness Day at Province House in Halifax and prominent Nova Scotia MLAs delivered resolutions in the House of Assembly recognizing the “immense benefit” of March of Dimes and Conductive Education in Nova Scotia.
