Stewart McKelvey is pleased to again sponsor and participate in the fifth annual Halifax Rock for Kids in support of March of Dimes Canada. This year’s event, held on October 29 at the World Trade & Convention Centre, positioned Halifax’s top amateur musicians on the stage to do battle for the title of Halifax’s best corporate band.
One of seven bands strutting their musical chops, the Stewart McKelvey ensemble, Project 501—consisting of Art Barry, Q.C. (lead guitar), Colin Piercey (vocals), Richard Niedermayer (bass), Glenn Collier (drums) and Marc Belliveau (guitar)—helped to raise over $30,000 for the cause.
To celebrate the 1980s, guests and band members were invited to wear their “sunglasses at night”, their big rocker hair, stirrup pants, Peter Pan boots, neon T-shirts, and, of course, leg warmers.
Rock for Dimes benefits Conductive Education® Nova Scotia, an innovative program that blends elements of education and rehabilitation to improve the mobility and self-confidence of children with neuro-motor disabilities. March of Dimes Canada is a nationally registered charitable organization providing support services to people with disabilities, their families and caregivers across Canada.
