The Eddy & the Stingrays benefit dance has been relocated to the WB George Centre on the former Kemptville College campus. The date of April 13 remains the same.
With over 300 tickets sold, and a waiting list of 100, it was decided to change the venue in order to accommodate the larger crowd. Doors open at 8pm.
Bob Windsor, band leader, approached the Foundation with an offer to headline a benefit dance for KDH in honour of the band’s 39th anniversary. The band will celebrate with special guests, including former band members, all four ‘original’ band members, and some of their promo items and costumes from over the years.
This generous donation from Eddy & the Stingrays will support the development of a new mental health and addictions hub for children and youth. This effort is being developed in partnership with local and regional health care partners to address a major gap in healthcare for children in our community.
The KDH Foundation thanks the volunteer organizing committee for their ongoing support in spearheading this event. The Kemptville Lions will be keeping the bar tended. Catered Affairs will have a food stand, including nacho platters and chili bowls for sale.
