Benefit Concert October 25 in Brantford

The Lansdowne Children's Centre Foundation concert series continues this fall with musical performances by Fleetwood Nicks and Practically Petty at the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts. Hosted by

Lansdowne Foundation Executive Director Angee Turnbull is thrilled to continue the benefit concert series that annually generates income for Lansdowne Children's Centre Foundation and brings lively music and fun into the community.

While last year's drive-in concert with Epic Eagles - a tribute to legendary rock band, The Eagles - was a great success and a unique entertainment experience outdoors at the Burford Fairgrounds, the Foundation team and event organizers are excited to see the show return to an indoor venue.

"The Sanderson Centre is a premier concert venue in our region, and we know from past experience that this concert will be one of the season's highlights. What a fantastic opportunity to enjoy great music and talented performers, and contribute support for programs that help children in our community."
