On January 31st, 2014 The Imperial in Vancouver is hosting the 30th Anniversary of Atira with special performances by BESTiE and RYKKA.

This event will celebrate the partnership between Atira and A Better Life Foundation, both these organizations work tirelessly to tackle some of the issues that the Downtown East Side of Vancouver faces year round. Janice Abbot, CEO of Atira, focuses on ending violence against women in the DTES through education, outreach and advocacy while Mark Brand, CEO of A Better Life Foundation, focuses on food security and employment of those in the DTES.

The partnership between the two companies, as well as with two Vancouver based bands BESTiE and RYKAA, is sure to rock the Imperial next Friday. Proceeds from the event will benefit both organizations. Purchase tickets here  Jan-31.eventbrite.ca
