Today at Budweiser Gardens in London, ON the London JUNO Host Committee joined by Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee and The Reklaws announced that over $205,000 has been raised for MusiCounts to help put instruments into the hands of kids who need them most.
When it was announced that the JUNO Awards were set to take place in London, ON on March 17, 2019 the London JUNO Host Committee partnered with Budweiser Gardens, London Music Hall and Centennial Music Hall to donate $1 per ticket from select shows to MusiCounts. The last official show supporting this $1 per ticket donation campaign is the Dean Brody and Dallas Smith: Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone show featuring Chad Brownlee, The Reklaws & Mackenzie Porter happening tonight at Budweiser Gardens. MusiCounts was thrilled to join the London JUNO Host Committee, London Mayor Ed Holder, the JUNO Awards and Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee and the Reklaws to celebrate this special announcement.
This amazing donation to MusiCounts will mean that thousands more kids have access to the transformational benefits of music education in their school or community. To-date MusiCounts has supported over 30 London area schools and community organizations with instrument grants, and with this contribution we look forward to making a continued impact in the London area.
The London community went above and beyond to help ensure that all kids have access to music education in their school or community, and MusiCounts is incredibly grateful. In particular we’d like to thank:
The London JUNO Host Committee, especially Chris Campbell, Marcy Thomas and Ashton Patis
Mike Manuel and London Music Hall
Brian Ohl and Budweiser Gardens
Brad Jones and Centennial Hall
The City of London and Mayor Holder
The artists, and all who attended a show and helped support this campaign
