Party for baby Jordan

Jordan Robinson faces a big battle against leukemia - this is a chance for the community to both help out and have fun.

It’s a musical event for a good cause.

Jordan Fest will be held Sunday (Sept. 20) at Ed McGregor Park in support of 18-month-old Jordan Robinson, who is battling acute myeloid leukemia.

Young Jordan will undergo chemotherapy over the next 10 months and may need a hematopoietic stem cell transplant.

Jordan Fest, which runs from 1 to 8 p.m., will feature an array of local music bands, such as Daniel Mark, Gord Phillips Band, Be-Rad Crew, Meagan & Hayden, and Taylor Caspersen. Activities also include face painting, a photo booth, all alongside iconic Sesame Street characters.

Entry is by donation.

Food and beverages will also be available, which will be provided by Jordan River-based Cold Shoulder Café.

Anyone interested in supporting Jordan and his family can visit the Baby Jordan’s Fundraiser Facebook page at facebook.com/pages/Baby-Jordans-fundraiser/1703245019895543?fref=ts.
