Friday’s Rock For Relief benefit concert on CHEK will raise funds for Vancouver Islanders who are most in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. We spoke to some of the community leaders and organizations to find out what Vancouver Island is doing to help the most vulnerable and how you can help during this Friday’s broadcast.
Rock for Relief airs Friday, April 17 at 8 pm and will feature performances by multi-Grammy award-winning Victoria producer and musician David Foster, Randy and Tal Bachman, the Tenors, and Trevor Guthrie. There will also be performances from Current Swell, Ocie Elliot, Aaron Pritchett, Jesse Roper, Carmanah, Kathryn Calder and many others.
This Island-wide fundraising effort is a joint initiative between CHEK, the Victoria Foundation and the Nanaimo Foundation, with donors able to direct their funds to either the Rapid Relief Fund, supporting Greater Victoria and the Cowichan Valley (www.rapidrelieffund.ca), or the Island Response Fund, supporting communities north of the Cowichan Valley (www.islandresponsefund.ca).
