Jared Ricks Tribute Show
October 20 @ 2:00 PM - 11:55 PM
A collaboration of friends and family present:
a memorial tribute showcase in honour of our beloved Jared Ricks.
For those who don’t know, Jared passed away on Dec 29th 2018 from a massive seizure in his sleep. He struggled with a seizure disorder since childhood, and was only 2 months away from a surgery that could have changed his life. Jared touched the hearts of many with his loving character and his music.
So we are hosting this event, and,
**all proceeds will go to the BC Hospital Foundation for Research into SUDIE (Sudden Unexpected Death In Epileptics)**
So please join us for a daylong celebration starting with an opportunity for you to come share a memory, a story, a song, in commemoration of our late friend and master musician – followed by a full evening of heavy metal bands whom Jared knew and loved.
Because Jared would have wanted it that way.[Jared’s story has been selected by the BC Epilepsy Society to raise awareness about people who have epilepsy. There will be a film crew at the event.]
