Pick of the Day: Party4Pastures Benefit Concert

atwoodYou can find out more about this benefit concert, which features Midnight Roses, Glenn Sutter, Black Drink Crier and the Down Home Boys, here. In a nutshell, though, it’s geared to promoting awareness of the importance of public pastures that the feds recently transferred to provincial control to the prairie eco-system. The concert goes tonight at the Artesian on 13th at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 advance and $30 door.

Then on June 27 there’s another fundraising event to promote conservation of prairie grasslands called Prairie Passages Dinner. It features guest-speakers Margaret Atwood (pictured) and her partner and fellow novelist Graeme Gibson, and goes at the Hotel Saskatchewan at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $100, and can be obtained by calling 306-525-6400.
