Virtual Concert: Take a Break with Dave Kalil, April 17, 7:30PM

Ottawa’s Piano Man, Dave Kalil, is hosting a Facebook live virtual concert in support of Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) Foundation.

Since March 14, 2020, Dave has played for his fans on a Facebook live stream every Saturday night, inviting viewers to Take a Break from the stress of the pandemic and enjoy listening to familiar songs.

During the shows, Dave asks his audience to donate funds to the designated charity for the evening. This initiative has grown significantly in a short time and has supported many worthy organizations in Ottawa.

On Saturday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m., QCH Foundation will be the designated charity for the evening.  Funds raised will be used to purchase urgently needed medical equipment for our hospital.

Thanks to our event sponsor, Caivan, we have already raised $5,000 of our $10,000 fundraising goal for this virtual concert.

We are also pleased to announce that MD Financial Management has generously committed to donating $10 for EACH VIEWER who tunes into the concert. That means by simply joining the Facebook live stream, you will be donating $10 to QCH Foundation.

We are challenging you to help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000 by matching the generosity of these corporate sponsors and making your donation on the night of the concert or in advance.


We really hope you, your family, and your friends can join us on April 17, at 7:30 p.m. to Take a Break and enjoy some incredible music by Dave Kalil in support of QCH.

Thank you to our generous sponsors:
