Welcome to The Kent Great Big Dig – The region’s most anticipated and exciting fundraising evening for the IWK Health Centre. The Kent Great Big Dig is an event that has raised over 2 million dollars in the past 12 years! This year’s event promises to carry on the tradition of success and generosity by raising over $250,000 during an unforgettable evening of food, entertainment, spectacular auction items and prizes. This year the funds from The Kent Great Big Dig will go towards purchasing a piece of much needed equipment for the IWK Health Centre.
This year the Great Big Dig has made a commitment to help purchase eight ventilators for the IWK, one of the highest priority equipment needs! Ventilators are life support machines, or breathing machines, that are used for any patient whose breathing is compromised. These machines can breathe for crucially ill patients that can’t breathe on their own and also support them when they are having breathing difficulty. Seven of these ventilators will be used in the critical care units of the IWK while one ventilator is recommended for home care and can be used in the transition of patients to a home care environment.
Everyone has a story to tell about The Stanfields – if you don’t, give it time. The Stanfields attract fans of all classes and creeds across North America and Europe with their rhythm-fueled hard rock laced with traditional roots sounds. Recently they created an acoustic show that has been selling out theatres across the Maritimes. The Stanfields tour incessantly across Canada and Europe and have been honoured with a handful of awards including Nova Scotia Entertainer of the Year.
Bringing tight harmonies, powerful horns and a funky rhythm section, the ‘Tones energetic stage show keeps the party going. Performing so regularly, the band has camaraderie and a tightness that crowds cannot deny. Audiences from across North America have witnessed this band’s extreme talent and they are never short of completely impressed. Any Halifax local will tell you, The Mellotones are the best dance band in town!
