On Friday, October 13, 2017, local amateur musicians will take up their instruments to battle for the title of "Halifax's Best" at Rock for Dimes Halifax, a battle of the bands fundraiser. This is the 12th year for the fundraiser. Over $303,000 has been raised to date in Halifax at this annual event and our goal for 2017 is to raise over $30,000.

This year's costume-musical theme for the "two stages" event will be Canada Rocks to celebrate Canada's 150th; we encourage you to dress in RED & WHITE and join us. Watch your legal colleagues and corporate clients pay tribute to their favorite Canadian music artists or bands.
