This Friday, Nov. 18, Andrew Judah will headline a benefit house concert for the OneBagChallenge.

Kelowna musician, Andrew Judah received first place in the 2015 Music BC emerging artist program, and placed in the top 25 in CBC's Searchlight competition earlier this year.

Other artists playing the charity show include Swamp Honey, Tiger Moon, and Dustin McGifford.

The entry fee is a minimum $20 donation or a physical sleeping bag.

Metro Community will soon be opening a new downtown drop-in facility for the homeless near the corner of St. Paul and Coronation. They will have industrial washers and dryers so that they can keep the donated sleeping bags clean and dry for their owners all winter long. So far, about 25 sleeping bags have been donated.

The 48 hour challenge is key to this initiative. Participants are encouraged to challenge five people or businesses to donate a sleeping bag, and to spread the challenge themselves.

Guests at the concert this weekend will be encouraged to challenge others on social media at the moment of making their donation (at the door).
