The Hip Show to Benefit Canadian Legacy Project

Canadian Legacy Project is pleased to announce “The Hip Show,” a tribute to The Tragically Hip, will take place on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the Grey Eagle Casino and Event Centre in Calgary. This event is being presented to support Canadian Legacy Project and the thousands of Canadian Armed Forces veterans they help in Calgary and across Canada.

The Hip Show is Canada’s most authentic tribute to The Tragically Hip. Through their performance, the show brings the full Tragically Hip experience to life.

David Howard, founder of Canadian Legacy Project, says, “We annually present a concert to help with our funding drive, and we are excited to present The Hip Show. There will never be another Gord Downie, but we have the chance to celebrate his memory and his music while supporting those that have stood on guard for Canada and need our help.”

Canadian Legacy Project was formed in 2008 with the goals to develop and support programs for Canadian Armed Forces veterans who are having a challenging time transitioning to civilian life.

Many Canadian veterans are living in poverty and do not have the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter.

The Canadian Legacy Project also advocates for veterans and supports them by creating programs and supporting projects to help improve their everyday lives.

The organization’s focus is to develop projects and partnerships that are not currently being offered through Veterans Affairs and are underfunded. The Canadian Legacy Project raises money to ensure the needs of Canadian veterans are being met.

“Our programs focus on supporting our veterans across Canada in the areas of PTSD, housing, service dogs, employment, food, education, and advocacy,” states Howard.

Show ticket prices range from $30 to $50, with all proceeds going to support Canadian Legacy Project. Tickets to “The Hip Show” are available by calling Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-5000 or online at www.ticketmaster.ca
