We had a fabulous time on stage March 24 at the Blind Beggar Pub. We know our friends from fellow local cover band Falussy did, too.
And, well, the audience obviously had a TREMENDOUS time.
The numbers are in, and our two bands ended up raising $1,800 for Distress Centre Calgary through event ticket sales. Mark Allison, bass guitar guru for Falussy, dropped off the cash to Roxanne Cote, the facility’s resource development manager, earlier this week (see photo above).
For nearly 50 years, Distress Centre Calgary (DCC) has provided 24-hour crisis support in Calgary and southern Alberta–through a 24-hour crisis line, email, chat, text, and professional counselling for issues that can’t be resolved via telephone. It’s compassionate, accessible crisis support, and it’s also free.
From all of us with the Groggy Sundays, and our good friends with Falussy, THANK YOU for supporting the wonderful people at Distress Centre Calgary who support our city, day or night. Calgary would not be the same without them.
