The Neufeld Garage was filled with music Saturday evening as The Band RBB and Chris Sawatzky took the stage for the Rockin' For A Reason 3.0 charity concert.

Today House Chair Simone Penner says this is the third annual Rockin' For A Reason concert and all of the money raised goes to Today House and Steinbach Community Outreach. She notes they sold out once again thanks to their generous table sponsors.

2017 04 rockin for reason1The snack table at Rockin' For A Reason 3.0"We raised a total of $15,355 which is amazing, so we share half of those proceeds with outreach due to the generosity of two title sponsors. It is a start to finish theme, from the start when we get a guest at Today House till Outreach finds somewhere to place them it costs approximately $1,000 per person."

She notes the money will help approximately 15 people find a place to live. She notes The Band RBB, who headlined the concert, were actually the ones who came up with the charity concert idea.

Guitarist and Band Spokesperson Steve Neufeld says the band formed around four years ago and they were looking for a place to play when they were presented with an opportunity. He notes they were rehearsing on Main Street in Steinbach when a man walked in and asked if he could listen.

"At the end of the practice we asked him where he was headed and he said he had nowhere to go. He didn't have a place to sleep that night, he hadn't eaten in a couple of days so we fed him, got a hold of Irene Kroeker of Today House and Community Outreach and got him a place to sleep that night and into the outreach program so we thought, you know what if we are going to do an event, we are going to plan it around those two organizations and help them do some fundraising."

Neufeld says The Band RBB has worked with Today House every year since to put on the fundraiser concert. He adds Rockin' For A Reason 3.0 was a big success and thanks all of the sponsors and guests for their amazing generosity.
