GENERAL INFORMATIONDATE: 14 April 2008
Submitted by John Cockburn (Bruce's brother):
Bruce participated with a set, along with the Mighty Popo and Nicole Pageau, the Canadian co-founder of Ubuntu-Edmonton at a fund raiser in Ottawa. Ubuntu Edmonton is a "grass roots" NGO in Kigali, Rwanda, serving local widows and orphans of Rwanda's Genocide. The evening was organized by me (Bruce's brother) and was very low key with about 200 attending. It was held at the "Junior Ranks Mess" on Queen Elizabeth Dr. Unfortunately I was unable to attend as I had to depart for Afghanistan on the 13th (I'm a doctor with the Canadian Forces). The evening was a big success; we raised ~$9,000. Bruce's set was reported as "great" by a number of reliable sources and the whole evening was very well received. You can get more info about the Ubuntu Project if you wish by checking out their website at www.ubuntuedmonton.org.
