Here it is friends, concert announcement time... Our 5th Annual Concert for Socks is happening Friday November, 15th in Winnipeg at the West End Cultural Centre.
We have a stellar lineup of local music this year with Attica Riots + Efflo and viisi feat. Ellowex. This is an all ages event. Tickets are $10 online through Eventbrite or $20 at the door on the night of the concert. Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 8pm.
Concert for Socks aims to encourage support and awareness for homelessness and addictions through song, story, and art. This year we are happy to share with you that in addition to a great lineup of local music we will be honoured with an art exhibit hosted by individuals who have lived experience with homelessness and addictions.
We invite everyone to bring a pair of clean new socks to the concert. All proceeds plus all material donations received at the concert will be given to our partner organization in Winnipeg, 1 Just City.
1 Just City supports three drop-in community centres in Winnipeg’s core neighbourhoods: West Broadway, the West End and Osborne Village. Each of their drop-in sites serve those living with addictions, those without a place to call home, or those shunned by others based on race, income and sexual orientation. Their services include daily meals, art, senior’s programs, haircuts, showers, laundry, toiletries, and clean undergarments. In the winter months they also run the pop up warming centre in Osborne Village: Just a Warm Sleep.
