On Saturday April 14, the Badlands Community Facility was host to a concert that raised funds for the DVSS Titans football team and the Drumheller Community Football Association..

The Chevelles, a band homed out of Lethbridge, were the musical liaisons for the evening providing music to the 100 plus community members who came out to support the fundraising for the Titans.

"We're always fund raising throughout the year to keep our season going. It's expensive to run the organization, we have three teams," said Titans photographer and member of the Drumheller Community Football Association Robin Duncalf. "Busing alone can kick upward to $10,000 to $15,000 a year."

The event was 18+ at $45 a ticket. This included entrance into the show and a midnight lunch. The event also had a cocktail hour and a silent auction.chavelles1The Chevelles performing at the BCF

"We much appreciate all the local businesses that stepped up to help us out. It definitely made a difference," Duncalf continued. "We had t-shirts, John Deer toys (and) lots of bath products. Little things like that. Just a bit of everything for everyone to bid on."

"(The Chevelles) played a bit of everything. They were a lot of fun and kept everyone on their feet all night," explained Duncalf. "It was just a great show. They never disappoint."

The amount raised is still being calculated. The Titans field is drying up and Duncalf said, hopefully in a couple of weeks the Titans will be ready to hit the field.
