An Ode To Gord - "That Night In Toronto" Fundraiser
As an ode to Gord Downie, and everything he stood for. Raising funding for his Brain Cancer Research Foundation.
We've all been feeing a bit lost, feeling out this new reality - a big gaping hole in our Northern Sky. Gord was the best of us. We owe it to him to keep trying. To keep working on the things he worked on his whole life. To keep connecting with each other, to share art, to stay complex. To do it together.
In that spirit, our Artery community is coming together in the best way we know how - to put on a special showcase, an Ode to Gord. An opportunity to say thank you.
All proceeds from this show (and all these showcases) will go directly to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research. This will give Sunnybrook the tools to help beat brain cancers that are currently unbeatable. Your support will help Sunnybrook conduct groundbreaking research that benefits patients not only at Sunnybrook, but across Canada and around the world.
Craft beer has been graciously donated for purchase (donation) at a cash bar (Again all funds go to the same charity) and there will be multiple artist paying homage to Gord and the Hip all night long.
A talented tribe of local musicians and artists will come together and pay tribute to Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip as Canada's most iconic band. All of the funds generated from this Artery showcase will go straight to the Gord Downie Foundation for Brain Cancer Research. The man was epitome of authentic, poetic, and artistic. Lets bring a community together to celebrate him and help his legacy continue to grow.
