The 4th Annual RAWA you can help!

This Saturday (March 20) is the 4th Annual RAWA Benefit Variety Show (and silent auction!). It will be at the SUB Ballroom (UNB campus in Fredericton) at 7:00pm, and tickets are $10 ($7 for students). Get your tickets at the door or in advance at Westminster Books or the SUB Welcome Centre.

This is going to be an awesome event, my friends. Performers include Kaylee Hopkins, Saa Andrew, General Strike, Nepalese dancers, and MANY OTHERS. Including, of course, our very own gumboot troupe! Rock sauce.

Where does the money go? Check out RAWA. They are so important and so amazing.

How can you help? Well, go to the event, for one! It is going to be an excellent time and I heard a rumour that there will be punch. But ALSO, if you have something to donate to the silent auction, let us know! The NB Rebelles are collecting donations to auction off. All proceeds will go to RAWA, and if you are a business, the name of your business will be prominently featured. It's win win! We can pick up your donation or you can drop it off - just email us at

See you there!
