‘Quest’ sponsors sought

Sponsorship is available to those looking to share the spotlight with local talent next Friday (July 25) under the big tent at the Sorting Gap Marina.
“Quest for the Best” once again will coincide with the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship, with a full slate of 20 different acts lined up, but Chamber manager Annely Armstrong-Thorstad said that the event is still in need of backing from local businesses.

“Any business or individual interested [should] call the Chamber as soon as possible in order to get their name and logo on our program,” she noted.
“We would love to have them be a part of such an exciting night,” she exclaimed, noting that the event will be recorded live and broadcast to a wide-range of viewers on SHAW TV.
The Chamber can be contacted at 275-5773.
A wealth of local talent will be performing next Friday, including six “Quest” alumni and 14 newcomers.
The list of contestants and the song they’re performing includes:
•Jessica Desrosiers—“Midnight in Harlem”;
•Adrian Perreault—“Bottle Let Me Down”;
•Bryan Ribey—“More Than a Feeling”;
•Alex Denby—“Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”;
•Dave Miller—“Mercury Blues”;
•Abbey Calder—“Pour Some Sugar on Me”;
•Joleigh Hayes—“Gravity”;

•Charity Alverson—“Don’t Know Why”;

In related news, Armstrong-Thorstad said there are two VIP tables available for groups to purchase.
“Tables are situated in front of the stage and are decorated with snacks on the table,” she noted.
The VIP tables, which seat eight to 10 people, cost $200 each or $20 a ticket and can only be purchased ahead of time on a first-come, first-served basis.
Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show likely starting around 7:30.
Tickets cost $15 each, which are available at the Chamber office or at From the Grind Up.
They will also be sold at the door while supplies last.
“We will have two lines set up at the door: one to purchase tickets and an express lane for those who have purchased tickets in advance so they can get in quickly,” Armstrong-Thorstad concluded.
