Hip Hop for a Cure is taking over Neighbours Pub next Saturday, March 25, for a great cause.
"It's a benefit for the Drumheller Area Health Foundation that we put together and it's basically supporting the cancer clinic in town. We have 11 acts, including ourselves, from Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer showing up," stated organizer Thomas Schow.
To help raise more money for the Drumheller Health Foundation, there will be a few raffle prizes during the show.
"Neighbours donated a Jonny Hogue, he played for the Dragons, autographed goalie stick that they're going to do a silent raffle for. We got a whole bunch of raffle baskets made up as well as Jurassic Ink is sponsoring a raffle basket," Schow outlined.
Hip Hop for a Cure has artists performing including Bad Action, Wes Paul and local Jason McLean.
"There's a couple younger guys that haven't got out into the scene that are now trying to make it and we have this big event, so we tried to make it as big as possible. Everyone else on the list has performed in Drumheller before, so it's kind of a reunion for all the acts performing," Schow added.
Doors open at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, with the music starting at 9:15. There are still a few tickets left for the show.
"It was a donation for a ticket and we've pretty much sold all of the tickets. There is a couple left at Jurassic Ink, he has the last remaining tickets," noted Schow. "Even though tickets are sold out, well close to, we are still accepting donations. Hopefully everyone got a ticket that wants to come down. If they still want a ticket, they can contact me through my information on the Facebook page and then if any tickets become available I can contact them."
"Receipts are available (and) they will be given out by the Health Foundation. Once I hand in the money they will send out the receipts, for over $20, and they can get a receipt for taxes."
