SLAM wins $1000 in Awesome Airdrie Pitch

The first Awesome Airdrie Pitch Party lived up to its name.  More than 60 people came to TAJ Restaurant December 14 to cheer on the four finalists in their bid to win $1000 cash to support their awesome idea.

SLAM (Support Local Airdrie Musicians) sold the judges on the innovative concept of their organization, their well thought out list of objectives and how the $1000 would jumpstart their action plan.

Jay Stoudt presenter for SLAM and one of the founding members said he was up all night after the pitch party, he was “so stoked”.

“We thought all the pitches were awesome and we were so surprised to win,” Stoudt said. “This gives us a really good kick start to getting our initiatives into gear which includes getting our society papers registered, booking the Bert Church Theatre for an open mic night in March and creating promotional materials to reach out to all the local basement and garage solo musicians and bands to get them involved.”
