In memory of Jack
“It helps youth who are transitioning from high school to post secondary education,” said Kait Hunt, who is planning the charity night. “They also provide information for parents and teachers. They partnered up with the Kids Help Line.”
Hunt said she heard about the charity from her mother. The planning began with a class project where she was to pick a charity to raise money for.
“We had to choose a non-profit organization to raise money for,” Hunt explained. “I came up with the idea to do a band night because my boyfriend is in a band and one thing led to another and now it’s being held at the Armouries in Hamilton.”
Hunt says they have received pizza donations in addition to the Armouries donating their space for the event and setting up a stage for the bands. She said the committee has been really helpful.
“I had said I’m interested in raising money for the Jack Project,” Hunt said. “People just sort of joined my group and we collaborated. It all just fell into place.”
A dollar from every drink will be donated from the event.
Doors open at 7 p.m. at The Armouries on 200 James St. North. There is a minimum five-dollar donation at the door. For more information go to The Jack Project Mohawk Facebook page.
