Local band Cauldera has initiated a fundraiser in support of Japan.

Local band Cauldera has initiated a fundraiser in support of Japan.

Band members Jeff Watson, Andrew Oliver, Aaron Yazzi and Zak Eburne-Stoodley have been following the devastation in the country of Japan.  Like the majority of us, they’ve been shaken at what the people of Japan are having to struggle through.

On top of the 9.0 earthquake, devastating tsunami and severe unremitting aftershocks, there are the nuclear reactors to worry about.

All this affects not only the people of Japan but presents a danger to the rest of us as well.

“We have a desire to do something more, to help in some way. So, from here came the fundraiser idea,” say the band members. These Grand Forks natives write their own original music and play locally at various

establishments and private events.

They also proudly support many other local events and fundraisers, including our annual Grand Forks and District Fall Fair, Canada Day, as well as countless Boundary Peace Initiative events.

So, to jump up onto the fundraising bandwagon, Cauldera will be donating all of their profits from the evening performance in aid of Japan.

Those funds, along with all of the donations raised throughout the evening, will be donated to the Red Cross to be forwarded to Japan’s disaster relief efforts.

Cauldera asks you to join them for a rockin’ evening of music and dance.

They will perform their unique style of original music at 8 p.m. on April 29 at the Winnipeg Hotel here in Grand Forks.

Let’s rock out for Japan!

Anyone wishing to donate can do so at your local Red Cross or at any banking institution.
