BRYAN ADAMS DOANTES $20k to UNISON

Last week at the Sheraton Centre's Grand Ballroom in Toronto, a sold-out crowd gathered to to honour more than 40 Canadian businesses and individuals at the 2015 Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards. Among the honorees was the 2015 recipient of the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award, iconic Canadian rocker and activist Bryan Adams.
 
In his introduction, Gary Slaight said of Adams, “Bryan’s global success didn't just allow him to connect with fans in far off countries, it also opened his eyes to the hardships of life, and the realization that poverty, sickness, illiteracy, and disease all exist around the world as well as here at home.”
 
We’re honoured that Adams choose to donate a portion of the award to the Unison Benevolent Fund. The 40 thousand dollar award is being split evenly between Unison and The Bryan Adams Foundation.

UNISON JAM RAISES OVER $15k!
