2014 Raise a Little HELLp Line upDonating 100 per cent of all proceeds to Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, this highly anticipated annual event helps provide homeownership opportunities for low income working families.

Each year, Raise A Little Hellp presents top musical talents and this year is no exception. Performers will include: JUNO award-winning musician, Amelia Curran, who continues to build her reputation as one of the most enigmatic and forceful songwriters on the scene; Atlantic Canada’s best-kept secret, rocker Adam Baldwin, who was recently special guest on Matt Mays’ 2013 cross-Canada tour; New York City based British born singer-songwriter, James Maddock, who is a fixture on the Folk and Americana circuit and three time multi-gold recording Canadian musician, Tom Wilson of the JUNO award-winning folk/rock/country group, Blackie and The Rodeo Kings and Lee Harvey Osmond.

“For six years, we’ve been fortunate to have great musical talent show up and play for a great cause,” said Stuart Jolliffe, Regional Vice President, Atlantic Canada, Delta Hotels and Resorts, and General Manager, Delta Halifax and Delta Barrington. “Just when you think the favour bank is empty, past musicians tell new ones what a great event this is and presto; you have the best show yet!”

Along with the incredible music line-up, the event also features the best in Nova Scotia beverages and cuisine. With food stations set up throughout the event, offering enticing local and regional cuisine prepared by Delta’s top chefs and spectacular culinary team, there will also be an extensive selection of locally produced wine, beer and spirits.

Each year, attendees delight in the silent auction, which offers trips to some of Canada’s best travel destinations, concert and festival tickets, music memorabilia, golf getaways, wine tours, and other one-of-a-kind, ‘must have’ items.

I’m excited about 2014, 95,000 may be our goal but 100,000 plus is our expectation for more houses for more well deserving Nova Scotians.”
