Doing Good and Winning Sweet Prizes: FINLAND, Steam Whistle and Motley Crue
Have you bought your tickets yet to the Championships on July 25th at the Mod Club?
Air Guitar is about world peace: The mantra – When you are holding an Air Guitar, you can’t be holding a gun.
We donate the net proceeds of our Canadian Air Guitar events to a children’s charity called Right to Play. They help children all over the world (1 million kids each week!) through sport and play programmes that are geared towards alleviating the horrors of war, disease, poverty and famine. They help children rediscover their youth, to gain confidence, to solve problems all through the power of sport and play. We raised $2500 last year for Right to Play. Our goal is to double that this year for a total donation of $5000.
Our competitors are our life blood. Without their bravery and freakin’ entertaining performances, we don’t have much. They bring out their friends who buy tickets, who drink beer. We thank these friends who cheer for their favourite performers to encourage and lift them up as these Air Guitarists do what very few do, but all of us should do (at least once a year): Rock out for World Peace.
So to thank our competitors, and to encourage others to get on board and bring out their friends to support the cause we’ve got a pretty nifty bunch of prizes for our top finishers – huge thanks to our sponsors for making this possible:
GRAND PRIZE: 2015 Canadian Air Guitar Champ! Free trip to Oulu Finland as Canada’s representative. Hotel stay in Oulu for 2 nights. Air Guitar Canada Trophy. Unlimited bragging rights and a certain degree of infamy (It’s ‘Priceless’… really).
5th PLACE: $100 in Hogtown Pub and Oyster Gift Certificates (seriously awesome nachos)
BONUS – Other top competitors will receive Second City Gift Packs ($45 each) and Second City Training Centre vouchers.
So whatcha waiting for… volunt-‘air’ yourself for a good time.
