Allison Crowe w. Emma Peckford: Benefit Concert for AIDS/HIV Awareness

  • Place : Swirsky's Theatre and Music Hall, 7 Broadway, Corner Brook A2H 4C2
  • Time : 21:00
  • Contact : David Jones, Harm Reduction Manager, AIDS Committee of NL - 709-660-4800
  • Details : Join us Friday, September 19th @ 9pm for a great night of music with special guest Emma Peckford and featuring Allison Crowe. This special show is part of a week of community activities leading up to Corner Brook’s HIV/AIDS “Walk for Life” (happening this year on Sunday, September 21). Admission to the HIV/AIDS Awarness Benefit concert will be a donation of your choosing at the door. With this concert we are hoping to draw in an all ages audience so as to further promote HIV and AIDS awareness in our community. Both musicians have generously agreed to donate their time to play at this event. While we have had the annual AIDS “Walk for Life” for many years, this year we decided to hold the HIV/AIDS Awareness concert with Allison and Emma, with the intention of making HIV and AIDS awareness more attainable for our community. We are having this concert because, especially for youth, HIV and AIDS have become falsely obsolete over the last fifteen years. In having a concert that is accessible to all ages, we are hoping to increase the focus on these health issues that do not discriminate and are still very prevalent in our society. For more information about this event, or other AIDS awareness week activities please contact David at 660-4800 or djones@acnl.net
