When: October 17, 2018
Cost: Regular $59  and Member $54. Can be purchased by telephone, online or in person: 905-681-6000, www.burlingtonpac.ca

Details: Legacy: A Tribute to Gord Downie will mark the one-year anniversary since Canada lost this important icon. This event will be a special evening to celebrate the man, the music and his legacy. Will include performances of Gord Downie songs and shared stories by Twin Flames, Bruce McCulloch, Tom Wilson, Danny Michel, Trent Severn, Matthew Barber, and Damhnait Doyle. Speakers will also include Chief R. Stacey Laforme, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, and Sarah Midanik, President & CEO of The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund.

Funds raised at this inaugural event will go directly to the DWF, and the designation of the Downie/Wenjack Fund Legacy Space at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre – the first performing arts centre in Canada to do so. Legacy Spaces are designated spaces that are dedicated to providing accurate information regarding Indigenous history and the journey of reconciliation.

The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund is part of Gord Downie’s legacy and embodies his commitment, and that of his family, to improving the lives of First Peoples in Canada. In collaboration with the Wenjack family, the goal of the fund is to continue the conversation that began with Chanie Wenjack’s residential school story, and to aid the collective reconciliation journey through a combination of awareness, education and action. Funds raised through Legacy Spaces help support the development of resources for the spaces as well as DWF programming such as Legacy Schools, ReconciliACTIONs and events that serve to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities together.
