“We really need to get as many people to TASSS on Friday night as possible—we want to pack the place,” says Dave Pogue, founder of Team 55: Let’s Tackle Suicide Awareness.
Three Days Grace have announced three special shows that will take place here in their hometown of Peterborough on December 11th, 12, and 13th at The Venue.
Each night will benefit a charity specifically chosen by the band that has a special place in their lives.
* December 11th will benefit The James Fund, the largest umbrella organization for neuroblastoma families in Canada, and whose reach extends into the U.S. and around the globe.
* December 12th will benefit Road Recovery, which is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge and resources.
* December 13th will benefit The Herbie Fund, whose mission is to bring children from around the world to The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) for life-saving or life-altering surgeries—surgeries that are not available to them in their home countries because of high costs and lack of medical expertise.
Tickets for the shows, which are presented by The Wolf 101.5, are on sale now and available at all Ticketmaster outlets, Livenation.com and through the Rogers Wireless Box office or by texting ‘tickets’ to 4849.
