Local band Domino fundraises for Stettler Food Bank

Domino raised $600 in cash, and packed a truck with essential food supplies.

Stettler’s local band Domino played on Wednesday, Aug. 2 to a great crowd as they fundraised for the Food Bank at the West Stettler Park, as part of Entertainment in the Park.

The band raised $600, besides packing a truck with essential food supplies.

“It is always so good to play at home in Stettler, because the support we are shown, especially each year when we play at the park, means so much to us,” said Luanne Carl, one of the band members. “It is extra special to play at home as we see so many familiar faces that we don’t get to see enough of. We love being able to travel and see different parts of Alberta, and Canada, but there’s nothing like coming home.”

Domino played some new music that they have been working on, and showcased their new single “Fall When You Fall,” which released to Canadian Country Radio on May 15. The single charted in the Top 100 in Canada.

They also performed another new song they have been working on called “Nothing Like You.”

All through the evening, they played fan favourites such as, One More Kiss, We Just Did, Can’t Kill a Ghost, and Last Saskatchewan Pirate.

“We have been very busy again playing shows all over Alberta, and are looking forward to heading to Saskatoon in September for the CCMAs,” Carl added. “It has been another great year for us, with starting the year off by winning Group of the Year again for the Alberta Country Music Association in January. We were so honoured to have won this title for a second year in a row. All of our hard work is paying off!”

The band hopes to get back in to the recording studio in the next couple of months to finish up their album, with a release date to be announced.

“We are so honoured to do a fundraiser for someone or an organization in our community when we play at the park,” Carl explained. “The Food Bank is such an important part of our community, and we knew that with the economy the way it has been for the past couple of years, that they would need some help.”

According to Carl, no one should have to go hungry in Canada, and if they can help in some small way, they will sure try.

“We know that the Food Bank gets a lot of support over the holiday season, and that we tend to forget that we need to support them all year long, so we were excited to have this awesome community of ours fill the back of the truck with food, and also raise $600 in cash,” Carl stated. “The Food Bank said that it couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Carl thanked everyone who came out to support them at the park, for the people who volunteered to help them take the food and cash donations, and to all the people who donated.

“You truly knocked it out of the Park!”
