BRIAN SKLAR AND THE TEX PISTOLS TO PERFORM SOCIAL DISTANCE CONCERT FOR “LEAN ON ME” PROJECT
REGINA, SK. JUNE 22, 2020 – Grammy nominated artist, Brian Sklar, and the Tex Pistols will be performing a live social distance concert in support of the LEAN ON ME Project and the fight to reduce food insecurity in our community. The performance will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Brewed Awakening East.
The LEAN ON ME Project was developed in an effort to fight food insecurity, a problem that has grown with the COVID-19 pandemic. In partnership with Carmichael Outreach, Howlers Rugby Club, and Deveraux Group of Companies, Brewed Awakening has been collecting donations in their coffee shops in order to provide meals to those in our community who are experiencing poverty and homelessness.
“Millions of Canadians spend their days not knowing where their next meal is going to come from, and Regina is not unique,” says Carmichael Outreach’s Acting Executive Director, Rochelle Berenyi, “The LEAN ON ME Project has helped our organization face the challenge of food insecurity, and has seen support from so many members of the community. The team behind this project is so passionate and dedicated, and our organization is so grateful to be a part of it.”
June 24 will mark the sixth week of the LEAN ON ME Project, with different musicians performing live social distance mini-concerts every Wednesday morning. Brian Sklar, the only artist from Saskatchewan ever nominated for a Grammy, is excited to be a part of this project.
