The Unison Benevolent Fund has announced that Canadian music icons, RUSH, have offered to support Unison's funding efforts by donating $1 from each ticket sold at five upcoming dates to the Unison Benevolent Fund.
The band's popularity has always been unwavering, and they are currently on their Clockwork Angels tour, having just finished a trek across Europe and returning to North America later this month.
Long known for their support of various philanthropic causes, Rush have generously offered to support Unison by donating $1 from each ticket sold at five of their upcoming Canadian dates:
6 Hamilton, Ontario - Copp's Coliseum
12/14 - Halifax, Nova Scotia - Metro Centre
24 - Calgary, Alberta - Scotiabank Saddledome
26 - Vancouver, British Columbia - Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena
The Unison Benevolent Fund is a non-profit charitable organization that provides counselling, emergency relief, and benefit programs for those in the Canadian music community who face personal or professional challenges due to hardship, illness, unemployment or economic difficulties.
Whether it’s a favourite song or an album by a treasured artist, music impacts our lives. Every recording and show requires an invisible network of professionals working collectively to create all the music that is important to you. The majority of this team are self-employed or freelance contractors. They usually live without the support of a safety net and when a crisis occurs its impact can be devastating. Thanks to Rush, Unison will change that.
