Do the Right Thing and Rok for Food in Toronto this Saturday!

This Saturday, December 13th, 2008 Toronto-based music producer Shawn Lefebvre will be teaming up with the very cool Toronto hot spot Rok Boutique to benefit the city of Toronto’s less fortunate.

The event titled “Rok for Food” is a charity concert featuring 4 local up and coming rock bands, celebrity DJs and a number of local high profile favourites. The goal of the event is to collect over 1000 lbs of non-perishable food items that will be donated to Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank. ROK Boutique has also agreed to donate a considerable contribution to help buy turkeys for Toronto’s working poor during the holiday season.

The bands on the bill for the show are:

In addition, Rob Dyer from Skate4Cancer has agreed to be DJ’ing the event.

Join Shawn and ROK Boutique for “ROK For Food” on December 13th, 2008. There is no cover that night but participants are asked to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the food bank. There is a “No food? No Entry” policy for the night.

The ROK Boutique is located at 200 Bathurst Street at Queen in downtown Toronto.

Why don’t you stop by with some non-perishable food, enjoy some amazing rock and roll and make a difference this holiday season. That really is what it should be all about.
