On August 9th of this year, Canadian music venue Club Soda hosted the first ever Battle for Life concert to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society. Battle for Life is a battle of the bands event put together by Canadian music store, Steves Music and Cancer awareness group Heidi Go Siik. Founder Heidi Jasinger started the group after losing her father to lung cancer in 2008. Determined not have to see others go through the same battle she endured, Heidi built this charitable organization in 2011 at the young age of 16. A music lover, Heidi has thrown benefit concerts throughout the Montreal area to support the Canadian Cancer Society.
The Battle for Life event included a battle of the bands competition featuring local Montreal acts and a special performance and album release from Canadian group Mackenzie First. $1 from each album sale was donated to the Society.
Gator Cases in conjunction with it’s Canadian distributor Erikson Music, donated a set of specially branded Pink ribbon drum bags that were raffled off at the end of the night along with a matching Pearl drum set.
