Trooper Charity Rock Concert

Our 2010 Trooper Charity Rock Concert raised a little hell(p) for the Canadian Kidney Foundation!

On Thursday, July 22, we hosted a charity rock concert in support of the Kidney Foundation. The evening started off with our opening band, Jocelyn Alice. Next, 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Jon Montgomery hosted our live auction. The silent auction featured some fantastic works of art as well as Flames Jerseys and dozens of other great items.
The grand finale was a performance by Trooper, with an encore of Raise a Little Hell and We're Here For a Good Time. Thanks to generous support from clients, colleagues and friends, we raised $120,000. Our firm matched this donation amount which brings our money raised to $240,000. Please view our photos and sponsors below.
