On April 13, CFUR gathers together those interested in local music and culture to celebrate the city’s vibrant and ever-growing artistic community through a night of 90s nostalgia and fun – The Big Shiny Tunes Tribute Night: A CFUR Showcase at the Cowboy Ranch.
Partnering with Mad Loon Entertainment and Northern Health, CFUR’s goal is to celebrate the vibrant arts communities that already exist in Prince George and encourage its growth. In recognition of the ongoing opioid crisis that affects us all, Northern Health will be present at the event providing training on Naloxone administration and free Naloxone kits for attendees to take home.
The intent is to provide knowledge and remove barriers to access to Naloxone so there are more individuals equipped to deal with an emergency situation, whether at work, at a restaurant, bar, or music festival.
Proceeds from this event will support CFUR’s Youth Academy, replace a growing list of aging equipment, and cultivate similar efforts CFUR undertook in 2018. CFUR has shown leadership in skill-development for youth by developing a successful annual Youth Radio Camp and partnering with SD57. It has also has a long history of supporting community efforts such as the fundraiser for those impacted by the Fort McMurray forest fires, seeking out and achieving gender parity in CFUR’s on-air hosts, fostering a growing news service, and providing Public Service Announcements for local non-profits and charities. Come out on April 13 to celebrate and build safer communities with CFUR, Mad Loon Entertainment, and Northern Health.
