ATB presents: Drive In For Mental Health with Gord Bamford
Twenty-six time CCMA winner, Canadian country musician and Lacombe native Gord Bamford is coming to Lethbridge on Saturday, July 11, 2020 – Drive-In style!
Bamford and his crew will be at Lethbridge Exhibition Park on Saturday, July 11, 2020 for two shows at 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Tickets are $65 for a vehicle of four people, with all proceeds going to Lethbridge Family Services and Woods Homes to support mental health initiatives and LFS online counselling.
“To be back on stage is a big relief for everyone…..all the proceeds go to charity,” says Bamford, who credits Dr. Deena Hinshaw for helping them get to this point.
“It’s our first performance in four months. The uncertainty of not knowing when we’d be able to do it has been tough. I’ve got 25 people that work for me, so to get these people back to work is a big morale boost. We don’t know when we’ll be able to do a traditional show, but we may not work one for the next year or two.” He assures those interested in attending that all possible health precautions are being taken. Attendees must stay in their vehicles.
To date, the Gord Bamford Foundation has raised approximately $4 million for charity.
