Rock For Dimes


Rock for Dimes is a corporate battle of the bands held to benefit March of Dimes Canada's programs and services for children and adults with disabilities. Amateur musicians compete in this friendly fundraiser for the title of their city's best corporate band. Bands will showcase their talents in front of a roster of Canadian music industry professionals, friends and fans at the Commodore Ballroom on February 23, 2018. 

This event has become March of Dimes Canada's flagship national fundraiser and is now held in communities coast to coast. Since its inception, Rock for Dimes has raised over $1,500,000 to support programs and services such as our Stroke Recovery Canada® and Conductive Education®programs, and Rock for Dimes Vancouver has raised $143,000. Our goal for 2018 is to raise another $35,000. With your help we can do it!
