Save the Beat Niq

Posted on September 4, 2009

The Beat Niq needs your help.  They're in tough times financially and are kicking off a gala event to save their venue from going out of business.  I thoroughly you encourage yourself to go down there and help out. Gerry Hébert explains the event:

Over the past week in consultation with several business partners, staff and key supporters we have been formulating a last ditch effort to save the club. This message is a call for help to our many great friends and fans that have supported our venue for the last 14 years. We have set September 15 as a deadline to raise enough funds to keep the doors open. It is our hope that through memberships, donations and ticket sales for a major Jazz Gala scheduled for Sept. 10/11/ 12, we will achieve this target. Initially we need to raise at least $60,000 but along with the membership drive and Gala event, we will announce a corporate and personal donation campaign which will allow a reserve fund to be established and allow improved promotion, technical and management support.
