County residents and music enthusiasts should save the date for the not to be missed Valentine’s benefit concert featuring All You Need Is Love for a magical evening of music to raise funds to support medical equipment needs at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

All You Need Is Love, hailing from Belleville, ON will take to the stage in the Wellington Community Centre’s Highline Hall for their first-ever County performance on February 14, 2015. The group will entertain guests with songs that captivated a generation, celebrating the music of The Beatles. The star-studded concert will boast the talents of Andy Forgie (lead vocals), Mark Rashotte (lead guitar and vocals), Steve Smith (drums and vocals), Al Haring (guitar and vocals), Paul Lockyer (keyboard and vocals) and Vitas Slapkauskas (bass guitar).

All You Need Is Love combines stellar musicianship and vocals with an electrifying stage presence. Focusing on the Beatles’ studio years, the band thrills their audiences with selections from Rubber Soul to Abbey Road. Formed in 1999, the group have toured from Canada to Liverpool, England and from Mons, Belgium to San Francisco, California.

“The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is honoured and excited to team up with All You Need Is Love to bring extraordinary music to our guests while at the same time creating awareness for the need for updated medical equipment for our doctors, nurses and technologists,” said Hazel Lloyst, interim director of development for the PECMH Foundation.

Presented by platinum sponsor, Huff Estates Winery and Inn, the evening will benefit priority medical equipment needs at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and show time is 8:00 p.m. Throughout the evening, the Foundation will offer a live and silent auction.

In addition to community support, the dedication of corporate sponsors will help maximize proceeds for this event and is an indication of how these partnerships can help deliver exceptional care for our patients. The Foundation is proud to announce that Royal LePage ProAlliance Realty Brokerage is the stage sponsor of the show. As well, RBC Dominion Securities and Tom Belch and Sons Building Contractors have shown their commitment to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital through sponsoring the show.

“Huff Estates is honoured to be the platinum sponsor for this extraordinary fundraising concert for PECMH, which brings together a stellar group of performing artists. We believe there cannot be a better example of our commitment to healthier futures than helping to equip the County’s medical staff with state-of-the-art medical equipment for patients who need it most,” said Lanny Huff, owner of Huff Estates Winery and Inn.

Tickets are $50.00 inclusive and are available at the Foundation office, Royal LePage Realty offices in Picton, Wellignton and Belleville and Printcraft.
