Calgary Metalfest V Raises Over $7,000 From Live Charity Auction For Make-A-Wish-Foundation Alberta
This year’s Calgary Metalfest, held from September 14-17, saw an incredible historic line up that included ANNIHILATOR, the original line up of EXCITER, thrash veterans RAZOR and SACRIFICE plus killer sets from THE EXALTED PILEDRIVER, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, GATEKRASHÖR, DISCIPLES OF POWER, THE ORDER OF CHAOS and many more!
With all these performances over 3 nights in Alberta’s largest mosh pit, the festival organizers are no strangers in giving back to the community, using the event since 2013 to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta.
This year’s live charity auction, which is held in between band sets, had multiple offerings and bidding donors that lead the festival to raised its highest ever amount of over $7,000 to help the children.
CMF organizers comment:
“Thank you to everyone who donated and bid on all these items! We were able to smash our previous record from last year by over triple! Over $7000 was raised this year to Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta! This was huge for us! Thank you again to all involved in making this the best auction yet! See you next year!”
