Music Fest MS a success

The 4th annual Music Fest MS did not disappoint.

Kelowna's country music star Ben Klick raised a total of $56,865 for MS Society of Canada.

The annual fundraiser was held on May 8 at Predator Ridge Golf Course featuring a golf tournament, gala dinner, silent auction, and acoustic show.

Klick, Aaron Goodvin, and special guest, Dean Brody, took the stage in the evening.

“Every year the event gets bigger. The show wouldn’t be what it is without the support from the community, the sponsors, the volunteers, the artists, and my family. It was an incredible day up at Predator Ridge. And I’m excited to announce we there will be a virtual radio broadcast and telethon at the end of the month for those who missed the in-person show,” said Klick.

The event, in support of MS Awareness Month, brings together local communities through music and gives back to those who are directly and indirectly affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

“Virtual Music Fest MS – Presented by: BMO Private Wealth” takes place on the last weekend of May.

The first viewing will be on eMusic Live May 28 at 1:00p.m. it will also be broadcast on New Country 100.7 and 103.1 in Kelowna and Kamloops, Shaw Spotlight, and Klick's YouTube channel on May 29 at 1:00 p.m.

To date Music Fest MS has raised over $170,000 for the MS Society of Canada making the event one of the largest single day fundraisers put on by a third party in support of MS in Canada.
