Show me the Money in support of Our Kids Count

Rock 94 is proud to support Show me the Money in support of Our Kids Count!
 

Historically both of Our Kids Count and the Kiwanis Club of Westfort have raffled off a Harley Davidson motorcycle for many years. It has been a great vehicle for us to raise funds and while sales have been for the most part profitable, they have varied from year to year and often have proven a difficult sell, given the unique nature of this great brand.
Well, all that is about to change. We are announcing our new draw which is a joint partnership between Our Kids Count and the Kiwanis Club of Westfort. It is the “Show Me The Money” draw where we will be giving away $100,000 in cash over a twelve month period. There will be 15,000 tickets available at $20.00 each. The prizes offered and the lower cost of the ticket should prove to make this an easy sale to prospective supporters of both of our organizations.
Draws will be held during the first Friday of every month starting January 2018 to December 2018. Tickets purchased up to the Monday of the draw week will be included in the monthly draw. All tickets pulled will go back into the drum after being announced and will be made available to win again, again and again.
 

Cash Prizes will be as follows:
July 6, 2018: $1,000 $500 $375
August 3, 2018: $1,000 $500 $375
September 7, 2018: $20,000
October 5, 2018: $1,000 $500 $375

Magnus Theatre 2018-2019 Season

Rock 94 is proud to support the Magnus Theatre 2018-2019 Season!

Magnus Theatre’s Artistic Director, Thom Currie, laid out his vision for the upcoming 2018-19 season today. As always, the new season has something for everyone, but the new season will be packing even more entertainment into the mix.
The Main Stage officially starts with BANG BANG, a drama by Kat Sandler. A white playwright uses the shooting of an unarmed young Black man by a police officer as a “jumping off point” for his hit play that is soon to be adapted into a major movie. Gripping, controversial and very funny, BANG BANG is a brand new play from an exciting new playwright.
Next up is the theatre hit with a cult-like following; THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW by Richard O’Brien. The humorous “musical with music” has thrilled audiences around the world since the early 1970s and will have Thunder Bay audiences on their feet to do the Time Warp.
Magnus ends the first half of the season with a Christmas Classic by a northern playwright. Michael Shepherd’s take on Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL will be holiday fun for the entire family. Follow Ebenezer Scrooge’s visits from the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future in a heartwarming tale of redemption.
The second half starts with the intriguing one man show HUFF. Written and performed by Cliff Cardinal, Huff is the wrenching, yet darkly comic tale of Wind and his brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse and at high risk of suicide. Wind’s fantastic dream world bleeds into his haunting reality, as he’s preyed on by the Trickster through the hallways at school, the abandoned motel he loves more than home, and his own fragile psyche.
Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and Magnus Theatre have teamed up to bring Thunder Bay a co-production of BUYING THE FARM, a hilarious comedy by Shelley Hoffman and Stephen Sparks. Thom Currie will direct both the Winnipeg and Thunder Bay productions.
The season will conclude with the non-stop comedy BOEING BOEING by Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans, this classic 1960’s French farce was a smash hit recent Broadway revival. The story concerns the self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has three fiancées, each one an airline hostess on competing airlines. All is going smoothly until an unexpected schedule change brings all three to the apartment for an overnight at the same time. Chaos ensues, as Bernard enlists his best friend and his cleaning lady to keep his three fiancées from figuring out what is going on.
Magnus will also be including many bonuses in the new season including Theatre For Young Audience Tours, A Community Fundraiser Show involving local lawyers, a series of concerts throughout the year, The 2019 Collective Creation Project, the all new Magnus Theatre Young Company, Magnus Masterclasses and much more.
The new season at Magnus will offer theatre fans more than ever!

Call our Headquarters and a team of 3 will come and drive you home safely in your own car. Two people will get in your car with you and the third person will follow behind. Your car will be parked in your driveway and you will be escorted to your door. We’ll even drive your babysitter home (as long as one parent comes with us). This is a FREE* confidential service provided by hundreds of volunteers whose main concern is the safety of our roads. *Those receiving rides may make a voluntary donation to Operation Red Nose.*

Saturday, December 1st  starting at 7PM.

The 2018 Parade of Lights is scheduled for Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. The parade of trucks will be leaving Manitoulin’s yard located on Main street at 7:00 p.m. and will then head down the Harbour Expressway, they will then turn right onto Memorial Ave and will head down Memorial Ave to Queen Street where the parade route will end. ( Trucks will then be directed to turn right onto Queen Street and will be mainstreamed into regular traffic on Water St)

We are also excited to be offering a sensory friendly area this year. (See Parade Route map online at www.paradeoflights.ca for exact location)

This event can only take place with the continued support of the Thunder Bay Trucking Community, through companies and people like you. Your participation can go a long way toward making this remarkable evening just that.

Children, youth, and young adults with Special Needs in Thunder Bay received $30,412 last year because of the Parade of Lights.

Autism Ontario - Thunder Bay & District Chapter, George Jeffrey Children’s Centre, Special Olympics - Thunder Bay & Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association children, youth, and young adults benefit from both the donations and the increased awareness the Parade of Lights brings to their causes.

It is also clear that the Parade of Lights has turned into a magical evening, a seasonal favorite among young and old alike. Thousands line the streets for an opportunity to be part of the excitement and they truly appreciate the efforts of each entrant in the Parade of Lights.

More information and full map of the parade route can be found at www.paradeoflights.ca , online participation info and registration can also be found there.

Please Note: For everyone's SAFETY we request that ALL Parade of Lights watchers, parents, guardians, & children keep OFF the road while watching the parade. Also please do NOT leave or exit the Parade of Lights until the school bus followed by a police car has gone past your location. This is your sign that it is safe to leave. The purpose of this is to ensure the safety of the volunteers who are collecting donations as they are being picked up.
This year you can also participate in the online 20-20-20. In addition to typical fundraising we are asking for your support to donate $20 for our 20th Anniversary to raise $20,000 on Go Fund Me.

The age of children receiving gifts ranges from infant to 16 years. Adolescent children might receive presents of clothing or other necessities.
