ST. ANDREWS A host of Charlotte County talent will be featured Saturday evening at the Jenna L. Sullivan Memorial Concert in the Van Horne ballroom at the Fairmont Algonquin.
Proceeds from the concert, which will get under way at [7 p.m. AT / 6 p.m. ET], will go towards Save Passamaquoddy Bay which is spearheading the fight against liquefied natural gas (LNG) developments in Passamaquoddy Bay. It was a cause that Sullivan supported.
The 23-year-old died tragically in November when her car was in collision with a school bus, west of Saskatoon, as she was travelling across Canada.
A native of Four Falls, near Grand Falls, who had worked at Sweet Harvest Market the past two summers, she had produced a calendar featuring up and coming musicians from all over Charlotte County and had decided to donate the proceeds to SPB.
Now the artists featured in the calendar "The Musical Men of Passamaquoddy Bay," along with Ruth Dunfield, will perform in her memory to raise money for a cause that was close to her heart.
The concert will feature Soapstone Tribe, Adam Olmstead, Dan Cunningham, Gordon Gets Lost, Bob Hamel, Ideal Gas Law, Homemade Bread, Farley, Ryan LeBlanc, Sean Smith, and Dunfield.
Admission is strictly by donation, but Hamel, who organized the concert, is hoping the ballroom, which can hold 200 people, will be filled.
The calendars, priced at $15 each, will be on sale at the concert and they are also available at Sweet Harvest Market and Kennedy House.
