Giant Tiger organizing virtual concert series to thank front-line workers
Giant Tiger is putting together a series of virtual concerts as a way to thank essential workers who have continued to serve Canadians during the pandemic.
The series, which will be called #ThankYou Sessions, is dedicated to thanking front-line workers who are still working and possibly being exposed to the virus.
Additionally, part of the proceeds from the concert series will go towards support Food Banks Canada to help provide food for Canadians in need.
The concert series will feature Anthem Records recording artists, and it will stream live every Wednesday at 8 p.m. from April 15 to May 27 on Giant Tiger’s official Facebook page.
The first artist scheduled to perform is Canadian country star, Eric Ethridge, who will be performing songs off his new EP “Forever With You,” as well as talking about his musical journey.
“We truly appreciate the countless everyday heroes who are helping in the response to COVID-19,” Paul Wood, president and Chief Operating Officer of Giant Tiger Stores Limited, said in a news release.
“The #ThankYou Sessions, which will bring Canadians together virtually through a shared love of music and community, is just one of the many ways we have chosen to give back,” he continued.
