CancerCare Manitoba

We are proud to support CancerCare Manitoba’s internationally-recognized team of health professionals as they provide outstanding quality care for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer.

Sponsors

As a sponsor of Techapalooza, your organization is directly supporting CancerCare Manitoba while providing an enhanced profile of your organization to an audience of 500+ I.T. leaders and professionals.

Donate

One of the key components to our fundraising is the donations made by family, friends, and co-workers to CancerCare Manitoba.

Volunteer

Volunteers make Techapalooza happen; the organizing committee, band members, judges and everyone else that helps with fund-raising are ALL volunteers.

About

Techapalooza is a concert event that brings together 5 bands comprised of talented musicians who work in the I.T. sector
Since 2012, Techapalooza has raised over $250,000 for CancerCare Manitoba

The bands will perform in front of an enthusiastic crowd who will vote for their favorite band to be crowned “Fan Favourite”. Meanwhile, 3 celebrity judges will critique the band’s performances and select the “Judges Choice”…and while rockin’ the night away, we’ll be raising money for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

WHEN DID THIS ALL START?

When Techapalooza was first held in 2012, we had a sell-out crowd of 300 and raised $25,000 for CCMF. After another great event in 2013 at McPhillips Station Casino with 500 rocking audience members, raising $35,000, we moved the event to the Hotel Fort Garry, and to date we have reached $250,000.

WHEN AND WHERE DO I SHOW UP?

Friday, February 24th, 2017
Doors at 6:00 pm – Bands at 7:00 pm
The Grand Ballroom, Hotel Fort Garry

Hexadecibels

Psychedelic Rock
When asked about their inspiration the Hexadecibels replied, “It’s as if you took the psychedelic sounds of the 70’s, added 2 cups of beer, a shot, put it in a blender then sprinkled it with sweet sounds”. That’s Hexadecibels.
