evenko is thrilled to announce its partnership with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold for OSHEAGA &îLESONIQ will go to funding free, accessible, extra-curricular arts activities in 8 Greater Montreal high schools, ensuring that young people can channel their passions into applied disciplines through the evenko foundation Program. Just by buying a ticket, festival goers are able to make a difference in the lives of others.
Founded originally by Marika Anthony-Shaw of Arcade Fire in their quest to support the people of Haiti, PLUS1 is a Montreal organization that facilitates the donation of $1 per ticket sold for events with the goal of giving back to an important cause.
