Imagine a nine-piece band comprised of some of the most seasoned and veteran session musicians in the country, joined by three back-up vocalists, who collectively have more than 100 years of experience in ‘the music biz’. Top that off with a diverse and vast array of musical ‘celebs’ and you have a guaranteed stellar evening of entertainment and surprises. That’s Motown Meltdown.
The annual Shooting Stars Foundation fundraiser, set for the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, March 26, is not only designed to get you movin’ and groovin’ but to also help raise much needed funds for the Foundation’s work. This annual concert and dance party is a sell out every year, so get your tickets soon!
The Shooting Stars Foundation’s mission is to produce unique special events with passion, integrity, and innovation to raise money for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Foundation’s Board oversees the receipt and distribution of funds from our events to frontline HIV/AIDS organizations.
Some of the past beneficiaries include British Columbia Persons With Aids Society, A Loving Spoonful, Wings Housing Society, Positive Women’s Network, McLaren Housing Society, Food For Thought Society and the Dr. Peter Centre.
