Fundraising Concert For Backpacks For The Homeless

November 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Backpacks For The Homeless returns, encouraging residents to pick up a backpack and fill it with essential items for the most vulnerable in the Ottawa-Gatineau area.  Some 2000 backpacks will be handed out by founder Ron Pitre at Christmas.


To ensure that backpacks are available for this initiative, they must be purchased the year in advance.  Help this year’s initiative by being a part of The 2018 Campaign Life Off And Fundraiser with a special benefit concert on Saturday November 17 from 7:00pm-11:00pm at Finnegan’s Pub on Montreal Road.

Enjoy dancing and music by The New Flashback Band, featuring Backpacks For The Homeless founder, Ron Pitre, playing songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and more.   Take part in the silent auction, and the 50/50 draw.
