Three of the region's biggest music talents made their way to the Shell Theatre stage on Saturday.
Joe Nolan, Jenny Thai and Boogie Patrol performed to raise money for the Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society (FSFFS).
"We increased attendance from last year and that was our goal, I think we had 128 people in seats and dancing out of their seats. It's more then last year and that's what we hoped for," said Heather Boonstra, executive director for the FSFFS.
The acts all made time from their busy schedules to play.
"It was so special," added Boonstra. "That fact that (Thai) would fly in from Toronto for this and that she was so excited for it and to get back to Fort Saskatchewan means a lot."
A total count on money raised is not available yet, but the dragon fire pit raffle alone brought in over $3000.
