Lacombe’s “Chairs for Charity” exploding in popularity

Lacombe's chairs for charity

Thank you to NOWCO HOME HARDWARE IN LACOMBE for submitting this post

NOWCO HOME HARDWARE’S 2NDANNUAL CHAIRS FOR CHARITY

Nowco Home Hardware has organized Chairs for Charity for the 2ndyear and it will run from July 19-31. The project started last year as a collaboration of downtown businesses to decorate downtown during Lacombe Days and raise money for a local charity. In 2018, forty five downtown businesses each bought and painted a chair to raffle off. The chairs were left on display during the 4 days of Lacombe Days and over $3100 was raised for the lunch program at J.S. McCormick School.

This year Deanna Nowochin, who has spearheaded the event wanted things to be bigger and better, so all Lacombe businesses were invited to participate in the event. This year there will be 75 chairs on display around Lacombe from July 19-31. The event was extended this year to ensure there was ample time for people to hear about Chairs for Charity and purchase tickets. The charities benefitting from 2019’s project are Lacombe Minor Football and the breakfast program at Terrace Ridge School.

This year we have 2000 tickets available, with a fundraising goal of $10,000. Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each and can be purchased at any participating business. You can see a full list of participating businesses and photos of their chairs at www.chairsforcharitylacombe.comor by searching “Chairs for Charity Lacombe” on Facebook.

BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Published

on

“…This is a great show. I mixed it last year and it was awesome!…” Carl Stretton

If you’re a music fan in the city, you probably know Carl Stretton.  He’s been mixing bands, playing bass, hosting jams, and supporting music for decades.  So when he says a show is awesome, I generally pay attention.  Here’s some more from Carl:

“Blues fans old and young (all ages) are welcome. Some great players on this tour. Big Hank with a great lineup. Some Canadian greats. Jack Lavin from Powder Blues Band on bass, Dennis Meneely of Streetheart and many bands, Saxophonist Dave Babcock from Edmonton… The ensemble is pretty stellar and a great blues dance party is guaranteed. Family friendly. Fun Times!”

Here’s a video that shows you all you need to know.

BIG HANK’S TRIBUTE TO THE BLUE’S SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

Big Hank Lionhart and the R&B Kingpins are going to fill your ears and spirits with the glorious gift of Christmas Blues!  Featuring a brand new line-up, fresh songs and a whole lot of good cheer this will be the ‘don’t miss’ show of the Holiday Season.

This show is a collection of traditional Blues Christmas tunes from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s 50’s, and 60’s, by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown, Etta James and more.

It’s not the standard collection of carols; rather it’s a tribute that gives you a look into the souls of the fabulous music legends sharing their Christmas Blues. A refreshing take on a holiday concert, it has played to sold-out houses and received rave reviews across British Columbia for the past 4 years.

Call 403.406-6592 to reserve your ticket today!  $15 cover.
