Fort Mac benefit concert


The Givin’ Back to the Mac fundraising concert is Sunday, May 15 at Centre 200. Over 5,000 tickets go on sale tomorrow. Cape Breton artists The Barra MacNeils, Matt Minglewood, Bruce Guthro, the Men of the Deeps, Aaron Lewis and Jordan Musycsyn will be joined on stage by hosts Bette MacDonald and Maynard Morrison.

A large part of the success of this fundraising event will be raffles and auction on site. Volunteers are ready to sell tickets and manage the auction of items and services donated by Cape Breton businesses. The main concourse and west concourse of Centre 200 will be designated areas for local business to raffle off or auction off items. Please contact Business Cape Breton today to participate by donating an item or service.  All proceeds from this event go to the Fort McMurray relief effort.

There are several corporate opportunities:

  • Goods for raffle and draw – Large items, over $500 in value, main concourse.
  • Goods for silent auction – Smaller items, generally $100 – 300 in value, main and west concourse.
  • Donations acknowledged on stage. ($1000 +)
  • Box seats at concert. ($2,500 per box – 13 available, food and drink service available – donation acknowledged on stage and on screens)
