METAL NATION RADIO Teams Up With CALGARY METAL FEST For Guitar Auction of Double-Neck Schecter
Every year, Calgary Metal Fest (June 3-6) has auctioned off the giant 4’x 6’ signed poster of the fest to raise money for Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta. This year will be extra special in this area as Reverend Rock (Ross Ingall) of Too Metal For Church on Metal Nation Radio (every Monday from 10am to 2pm and Fridays 12pm- 3pm EST) has donated adouble-neck Schecter guitar for the auction.
“Reverend Rock has a history of donating axes to worthy causes, the first being at the 2010 Niagara Aids Walk in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. This is the fourth guitar to be donated and the Rev. is stoked to be working with Metal Nation Radio on his bi-weekly show, Too Metal For Church and its sponsor, Big Nate Productions who is behind Calgary Metal Fest. We hope this beast raises a boatload of cash for Make-A-Wish of Southern Alberta at the auction to be held on the final evening of this year’s Metal Fest.” comments Reverend Rock (Ross Ingall).
The auction will culminate in its entirety before headliners Kobra and the Lotus go on at Dickens Pub on June 6th.
