“I have benefitted from music in so many ways, both personally and professionally, and I wanted to find a way to give back and open a door for others.  That is why MusiCounts seemed like the right choice.” – Kid Kut

MusiCounts associated with CARAS, is a charity based organization that focuses on supporting music programs in schools across Canada, ensuring that children of all walks of life have access to music education through instrument grants, scholarships and other music initiatives.  Just this month, an announcement was made that 71 schools across Canada will benefit from Band Aid grants to the tune of $560,000 worth of new musical instruments, the most ever to benefit from these grants.  For more information on MusiCounts, please see their official website at

The Hard Rock Café, located in the heart of Toronto, is a perfect venue for such an event which boasts a long history of live performances.  With limited advanced tickets available, it is strongly recommended that you purchase yours early, as it is guaranteed to sell out.

On December 2nd, 2010, you can expect an evening of unparalleled musical entertainment, along with the opportunity to give the gift of music to generations to come via silent auctions, and raffles.  100% of the proceeds will be donated to MusiCounts Canada on behalf of Kid Kut, IV Play, the artists and the event planning team. 

“Music has always played an important role in my life.  I am honoured to be involved with an event that allows children to grow and benefit through the joy of music” – Natalie of IV Play.
