The S’aints Sleighing Hunger Christmas Concert 2018
December 21, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor present the annual Sleighing Hunger charity concert featuring Windsor’s favourite philanthropic super-group, The S’Aints at the Colosseum on Friday, December 21, 2018.
Join the S’AINT’S for a Community Christmas Concert the whole family can enjoy.
Once again The S’AINTS are putting their own rock flavour to some traditional Christmas tunes and not-so-traditional rock classics. Founding members Jody Raffoul and Tea Party Drummer Jeff Burrows are joined by local and world-renowned talents: Wes Buckley, Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe, David Cyrenne, Kelly Authier, Marty Bak, Liz Robinson and Stephanie Baker. The show also features special guests ‘The Sinners’ choir, ‘The Horns of a Dilemma’, and ‘The Twisted Sisters’.
The S’Aints will also be joined by very special guest, Tea Party frontman, Jeff Martin.
Just in time to usher in the holidays, The S’Aints will perform traditional holiday tunes, including those from their current release “Love Is The Answer,” and from previous albums “Hope For Hunger”, “The White Christmas Album”, “Holiday Harvest”, “Sleighing Hunger”, “My Christmas Wish”, “Almost Christmas” and “Time For Joy”, with an electrifying, upbeat rock edge. The songs include “Last Christmas”, “Run Run Rudolph”, and so many more holiday favourites.
100% of ticket proceeds stay within the local community, benefiting those in need in Windsor-Essex and Chatham. Now going into its 5th year, the band hopes to build on the success of previous years which have raised nearly $200,000 to feed the hungry.
“The success of this concert is truly a community effort,” said Jeff Burrows. “For every seat we fill in The Colosseum, we know it means more people are being fed and shelves are being filled. This is a collective effort and one that is very close to our hearts.”
Proceeds from this year’s concert tickets and an accompanying holiday CD will benefit 16 local food banks in partnership with Windsor-Essex Food Bank Association (WEFBA) and Chatham Outreach for Hunger (COH). This is the largest number of organizations to be assisted by the charity concert since it came to The Colosseum stage in 2013.
CDs will be available for sale on iTunes, online at sleighinghunger.com/, St. Clair College campuses and throughout Windsor and Essex County locations for $10 each.
Don’t miss out on The S’Aints band and helping local charities!
