‘Tom Jones’ tribute concert coming up Feb. 14

Looking for a special way to spend Valentines Day? Well, the Kidney Foundation of Canada has just the answer.
On Wednesday, Feb. 14, the Northern Superior Chapter will be hosting a “Tribute to Tom Jones,” featuring Daylin James, at the Townshend Theatre here.
“We are thrilled to be hosting our second concert event in Fort Frances,” said Marion Harms, co-ordinator of the Northern Superior Chapter.
“This event provides such a great opportunity to promote the great work of the Foundation while raising funds for such an important cause,” she added.
The Northern Superior Chapter of the Kidney Foundation of Canada provides services and fulfills its mission throughout communities in Northern Ontario.
Through comprehensive programs, the Foundation provides patients and their families with education and support through the Living with Kidney Disease patient manual, peer support program, and a last-resort financial assistance program.
“When facing a diagnosis of kidney failure, information and resources make all the difference,” said Harms.
“The Kidney Foundation has a strong research program which benefits all patients from communities across Canada—to date, over $77 million has been contributed to innovative medical research that has lasting effects.”
Advance tickets for the “Tribute to Tom Jones” can be purchased at Northwoods Gallery & Gifts, Greensides General Store in Devlin, Emo Drugs, Visser Auto, and the Super 8 Motel for $20, or at the door for $25.
This is a concert you will not want to miss, so be sure to get your tickets early!

In related news, March is Kidney Health Month—the time of year when the Foundation kicks off its largest fundraising campaign: the March Drive door-to-door canvass.
Volunteers will be canvassing in communities across Canada, including Fort Frances, where roughly 80 canvassers will be going door-to-door.
“We would like to thank all of our volunteer canvassers in advance for their effort this year and to those who give at the door,” said Harms. “We thank you for your generous support.”
