|Special letter from Nikki Ide, Gabrielle's mom:
My cousin, Dan Wilson, has been organizing a special event in support of The Ride To Conquer, called AmaTour Night. The concept was to have a few local bands come together and raise some money for Ride To Conquer for some riders and employees at KPMG so they could ride - Dan is a partner at KPMG. The idea was to have a few bands perform at a local pub with ticket sales supporting their participation in the Ride to Conquer - but the Band Night has now outgrown three venues and is set to take place at The Docks this Thursday, May 30th! Over 800 tickets have been sold in a few short weeks and the event has gone totally viral! The event has been picked up by official promoters from Supernova and local media has picked up the story, including CBC! There will be live streaming Nationwide and the event is being pro-filmed for DVD!
Gabrielle's Ride has been fortunate enough to be included, as a special highlight, in the evening. Seen in a picture below, is Abi Smithson - who will be dj-ing a special set in support of Gabrielle's Ride. Below is a quote from an email from Dan:
'Also of note, we also just added a 15 min ‘kids set' in support of Gabrielle's Ride, in support of SickKids. Gabrielle was my niece so the cause is close to home, as is the main set fundraiser for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The kids set goes on around 8pm and includes 8 year old Abi Smithson (daughter of Alan Smithson of www.smithsonmartin.com) DJing on the same gear used by international electronica superstars Infected Mushroom.
Gabrielle's Ride has special pricing of $25 per ticket and has a special link for ticket purchasing - all sales of those tickets will go to Gabrielle's Ride. There will also be fundraising for Gabrielle's Ride taking place during our set. I will also have a special opportunity to speak and there will be a slide-show of Gabrielle throughout the set.
Children have been invited to attend the event and join Baylee and Jack (Gabrielle's cousins) and other friends and family to sing ‘This Little Light of Mine' following Abi's dj set.
Doors open at 7pm and the kids' set goes on around 8pm.
Please buy your tickets online and bring your kids to sing and join us for this special event! It is going to be a BLAST!
