Guests can then dance the night away to music performed by Rolly Rocker and the Hemi Heads. This local band will present a tribute dedicated to the classic music of days gone by. The show will consist of three sets, each reflecting on a different era. Their aim is

to give the audience the sound of the three classic rock eras. Check out the band's own website at www.rollyrocker.com. The cost to attend the Gala is $75 per person. To purchase tickets, or for more information, call Janet Foster at 905-873-6502. When the evening is over, proceeds from the event will go to HHCSI's youth programs, which operate out of Open Door Youth Centre in Georgetown and Off The Wall Youth Centre in Acton. Open Door and Off the Wall Youth Centres provide support to youth, aged 9-19, in a caring, non-judgmental, safe and friendly environment. Qualified youth workers provide supervision, a listening ear, guidance and resources for various youth issues. Youth have somewhere to go and something to do. The youth workers also provide individual support to youth through information, referral support and guidance outside of youth centre hours; Parents receive access information, referral, support and guidance during and outside of youth centre hours, and HHCSI youth staff working with other agencies (eg. Town of Halton Hills, Public Health, police, ADAPT etc.) can provide more resources for youth and parents in Halton Hills. A sustaining youth program enables youth to develop a positive lifestyle by developing strategies to deal with life's challenges and aids in the development of leadership skills and responsible citizenry. HHCSI is a member agency of the United Way of Halton Hills
