On Friday, October 26, 2018, local amateur musicians will take up their instruments to battle for the title of "Halifax's Best" at Rock for Dimes Halifax, a musical fundraiser for March of Dimes Canada. In 13 years, Halifax has raised over $310,000 to support Canadians living with disabilities, and our goal for 2018 is to raise another $50,000.

Join your colleagues from McInnes Cooper, Cox & Palmer, Burchells LLP, NS Dept. of Justice, Stewart McKelvey, Wagners, BMO Financial Group at our NEW location in the Schooner Room at Casino NS for an evening of music, dancing, silent auction and much more. Funds raised at Rock for Dimes Halifax will benefit March of Dimes Canada's Conductive Education® (CE) program in Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Aphasia Camps.

This year's theme is 'Hali-fornia Dreamin', It’s a Friday Night and it’s almost Halloween…. so walk through the Purdy’s Pedway and come on over and watch your legal colleagues and corporate clients do their best impression of California cool. Get into the Halloween spirit and dress up. Wear your California clothing or your favourite band t-shirt, bring your sunglasses + beach balls and be prepared to have fun singing along to all things California.

Competing for “Best RFD Halifax Band” and “Most Funds Raised by a Halifax Band“ will be: Fishy Business, Terminal Road, The Showcase Showdowns, Verdant Places, The Goldilocks Effect, and Red C
