7th Annual Rock for Care to Benefit VJH Foundation
It’s back and better than ever!
After a two-year hiatus, The Longhorn Pub and Rick Rock Entertainment proudly present the 7th Annual Rock for Care, Sunday, April 23 from noon to midnight at The Longhorn on 4513 – 25th Avenue.
Non-stop entertainment takes place from noon to midnight. Twelve BC bands will be taking the stage, with a new act performing every hour.
The event kicks off at noon with Pauline Kyllonen, followed by Little Miss Dangerous, Malaine and the Mix, Shut Up Patrick, Whiskey Dick, Wheely Nawties, Steel Toad, Nobel Crew, Rockoholicks, Junkyard Dogs, Mithra and closes with Marv Matchura.
Rock for Care will also feature a live and silent auction and 50/50 prize draws. Some of the auction items include golf packages, electronics items, a beer fridge and much more. Since 2009, the event has raised over $28,000 towards medical equipment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Admission to Rock for Care is by donation. All proceeds will support the Cancer Equipment fund at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
“The dedication of The Longhorn Pub, their staff, sponsors and supporters is greatly appreciated by VJH Foundation,” says Sue Beaudry Director of Development for VJH Foundation. “I also wish to thank the musicians who have given so generously of their time for without them this wouldn’t happen. A lot of work goes into this event, and many benefits to health care are the result.”
