Headliners School of Performing Arts (formally known as the Blues Underground) and Sidewalk Allstars is having a beer and burger benefit at the Foundry Pub, 125 Comox Road, Nanaimo, at 6 pm on Friday, June 4, 2010. This fundraiser is intended to raise money for better equipment and more instructors for the Sidewalk All Stars program. There will be a silent auction table and 50/50 draw. Admission is $10 including a beer and burger.
The programs offered by Headliners and the Sidewalk Allstars are extremely valuable for youth who wish to to expand and explore their musical talents. It is a healthy activity that many young people enjoy. Without doubt, the program would benefit from more input from a variety of music teachers, better equipment, and having the ability to open the program up to youth who may not be able to afford the fees. The school is not in a financial position to enhance their programming and is struggling to survive. They need your support to enroll more youth in this wonderful opportunity.
