BC/DC, the AC/DC tribute band from Nelson, rocked the socks off approximately 500 people who took in their concert at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on July 6.
It was the first event for organizers, Hun City Hunnies Non Profit Community Improvement Society. The group has plans to hold community events to raise money for local charities.
Hunnies board member Nadaya McNeil is calling the concert a success.
“We’re happy with it, being our first, and now we hope to increase community awareness of what we do.”
She says BC/DC was nothing short of amazing.
“We’d love to have them back here again. The band loved the crowd.”
The audience was a mix of all ages, with many coming from out-of-town to take in the concert.
Admission tickets were sold at a $5 discount if people brought food items for donation to the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society, but McNeil says even those, who paid full price and won tickets through various contests and promotions, brought food.
The event brought in $5,510 in tickets sales of which $1,653 went to each of the 100 Mile House Waterpark Society and Canadian Mental Health Association.
The remainder was retained as seed money for future events.
