One thing that sets Montreal apart from the other big cities in Canada is our outstanding nightlife and culture. The citizens of the 514 are also very active in many charitable causes. Best Kept MTL would like to put a focus on a special one coming up this weekend – Music Heals, A Benefit Concert.
The Montreal Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada is hosting a benefit concert to raise awareness and funds for critical Canadian research towards a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD).
PKD is a genetic hereditary disease affecting over 66,000 Canadians with 6,500 Quebecers at risk.
Last year, thanks to the various communities and corporate sponsors, we raised $7,000. This year we are expecting more people to attend this multi-ethnic benefit concert, taking place in one of Canada’s National Historic Sites – Montreal’s Rialto Theatre.
The second annual Music Heals Benefit Concert will take place on May 28.
Talented artists from Montreal and its surrounding areas will perform a variety of musical genres. At least 10 ethnic groups will reveal the beauty of their heritage through song and dance, and along with Kahnawake Native community performer, they will have you moving in your seat.
Several dignitaries will be present at our event. Members of Parliament, City Councillors, and a few Consular Representatives will be there. These are only a few important people who have publicly stated their support. Several doctors and staff members representing the MUHC will be in attendance.
Tickets can also be purchased or reserved at the Rialto Theatre by calling 514-770-7773
