Building Bridges Benefit Concert is to raise funds to feed malnourished starving children in North Korea, working together with a Christian Charity Organization called the First Steps Canada. Since the inception, this biannual event has successfully rasied funds by providing the top quality musical performances in Calgary and Edmonton. All proceeds from this benefit concert will go to the First Steps Canada to provide soy milk to orphan children. It costs $10,000 to provide soy milk to 10,000 children each year.
