The Foundation has also funded approximately $400,000 of community initiatives within Lacombe. The City of Lacombe is providing the venue for the concert, and $5,000 in sponsorship funding. The City of Lacombe said it is proud to collaborate with non-profits that benefit the community,and believe this concert will offer economic benefits for local businesses.It also has the added attraction of taking place during the annual Culture and Harvest Festival. The show will run from 7-8 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 16. The concert will be hosted just off the main runway, meaning those with aircraft can fly in. Organizers ask that no fly-bys take place during Gord’s set. More details and ticket sales are available at www.gordbamford.com.
