War Child has joined forces with 102.1 The Edge to bring you a weekly online auction of amazing memorabilia, tickets, and unique experiences, while helping children in war zones. New auction items will be announced each week on 102.1 The Edge as part of Thursday 30 with Dave Bookman. The items will be listed on our eBay page and will be accessible through this site, and at http://www.edge.ca.
The debut War Child auction item featured this week includes 2 tickets to see Gord Downie and The Country of Miracles live in concert at The Kee To Bala on July 15th, 2010, PLUS an Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Sunburst guitar autographed by Gord Downie himself. Bid quickly as this item will only be up for one week.
Legendary singer, songwriter, and poet, Gord Downie is one of Canadaâ€™s most revered artists. The frontman and lyricist of one of Canadaâ€™s most influential rock bands, The Tragically Hip, will release his third solo album, The Grand Bounce, on Tuesday, June 8th, 2010. The album was produced by Death Cab For Cutieâ€™s Chris Walla, and features a group of musicians known as The Country of Miracles, including Julie Doiron, Dave Clark, Josh Finlayson, John Press and Dale Morningstar. The Grand Bounce was recorded at The Hipâ€™s Bath House studio in Kingston and includes the hit radio single â€œThe East Windâ€ and the track â€œThe Hard Canadian,â€ which Gord performed live in Toronto last February during a performance with Gordon Lightfoot.
All auction items have been generously donated and all money raised will go towards helping children whose lives have been devastated by war. A new item will be offered each week, so keep checking the site for updates.
