Coming Home with the Wilkinsons

Date: May 03, 2014

Location: The Empire Theatre, 323 Front, Belleville, ON K8N 2Z9

Category: Arts and Culture

A local charitable organization known as “Harvest Moon Presents” is bringing a rare reunion of the renowned local country group “The Wilkinsons” to the Empire Theatre on Saturday, May 3rd. Joining them will be very special guests Small Town Pistols, Sleddogs, The Abrams Brother, and local group Emma & Sam McNichols — with comedic interludes provided by Nick Foley & Friends. The event is in support of “The James Fund” which raises money for research to cure neuroblastoma, a rare but deadly form of childhood cancer. Syd Birrell founded the James Fund when his son James was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. In Syd’s own words: In 2001 treatment options were running out for my son James as he fought recurrent neuroblastoma. After yet another late night medical crisis with James, I found myself talking with one of the oncologists. “You know,” he said, “childhood leukemia used to be 85% fatal. We threw a lot of money into research and ten years later 85% of the kids survive. We’ve got to do the same for neuroblastoma.” A week later we invited our friends to join us for the evening at our church. “Bring your cheque books. We are going to start The James Fund for Neuroblastoma Research.” Some $30,000 came in that night. Within two months a couple of fast track research projects were underway. Six months later we were past $100,000 and more research was funded. We didn’t find a cure in time for James. Twelve years later much progress has been made, and the $5,000,000 now raised by The James Fund (plus $7,700,000 in matching funding) has significantly contributed to the global search for a cure. Sponsorship packages are available for businesses interested in supporting this very worthwhile charity. The Harvest Moon Presents team has defined various sponsorship levels which include VIP tickets to the show. Interested sponsors can obtain a sponsorship information kit by phoning 613-962-5177 or sending an email to glenn.lidstone@shmsinc.com. The Wilkinsons achieved international success with 13 Canadian Country Music Awards, one Juno Award, and two Grammy nominations with hit singles “26 Cents” (#1 on Canadian country music charts, #1 on the R&R charts, and #3 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles) and “Fly (the Angel Song)” which made it to #1 in Canada. Tickets are available from the Empire Theatre box office, or online at: http://www.theempiretheatre.com/live-events For concert details or information on how to become a sponsor: www.jamesfund.com https://www.facebook.com/ComingHomeWithTheWilkinsons/ http://www.wilkinsonscominghome.com/
