On Thursday May, 12th, CANFAR'S THirty Under Thirty (30/Thirty) Committee hosted an amazing fundraising event at The Boat in Kensington Market. Featuring sounds the sounds of West of Indie, The Steady Rebels, and Gestures, the venue was afire with sounds of modern rock meets reggae with an alternative indie rock twist.
Organized by Gillian Forth and Sophie Hamr, the two ladies coordinated, engaged, triviad, and entertained "Boat Goers" long into the wee hours of the evening raising a grand total of $600 for AIDS research!
