Bob Pedler Memorial Fund Raiser
Saturday, November 4, 2017
1pm to 6pm
Local 293 AFM –The Hamilton Musicians’ Guild – will be staging a concert to raise funds for the Bob Pedler Memorial Fund. The fund was established by Local 293 many years ago to honour the memory of Bob Pedler, a former 293 executive and popular Hamilton musician and music store owner.
The purpose of the fund is to help any of our members who are experiencing physical setbacks which prevent them from practising their craft. It is meant to augment disbursements of the Lester Petrillo Fund, an AFM charitable trust fund which provides similar assistance.
The afternoon concert, to be held at the Corktown Tavern, 175 Young Street, Hamilton from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, will see many Local 293 members lending their time to this worthwhile endeavour.
$10 cover charge with100% of the proceeds going to the Bob Pedler Memorial Fund. If you would like to get involved feel free to call Brent at the Local office (905-525-4040).
The George R. Robinson Award Presentations:
Kevin Barber, Luis Pereira and Linda Fraser, and Graham Rockingham are the recipients of this year’s inaugural George R. Robinson Award in recognition of community participation and support of local music and musicians. We hope you will join us on November 4 in honouring these worthy recipients.
