Rock For Care helps hospital

The Longhorn Pub will again be rockin’ out to help a local organization.

The third annual Rock For Care in support of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Building a Tower of Care campaign runs Sunday at the pub, located at 4513-25th Avenue.

Hosted by The Wheelhouse Band, there will be non-stop entertainment from noon until midnight. Twelve bands will take the stage with a new band performing every hour.

Paddio Daddios kick things off at noon followed by Indecision, Purple Heathers, Flying Weekenders, Wheelhouse, Young’Uns, Floyd Verdan Band, Sugar Coated Killers, Kings Horses, Retro Active and Out of Eden. Closing things off will be Charlie and the Magic Boys.

“This will be a good time, so come out and enjoy some fabulous live music while supporting our community hospital,” said Longhorn Pub co-owner Eric Juzwishyn.

Amission is by donation, and all donations support the Building a Tower of Care campaign.

There will also be a silent and live auction, 50/50 draws and T-shirt sales.

Rock For Care has raised more than $7,000 since its inception in 2009, for equipment purchase at the new hospital tower.
