OLG "Presents Music" sponsors Windsor Bluesfest International;
As Music Sponsor, OLG proudly supports the 13th annual Windsor Bluesfest International which has quickly grown into one of Canada's premier blues festivals. Featuring performances by top local, regional and international blues artists, such as Taj Mahal and David Wilcox, Bluesfest promises to be four full days of world-class music and entertainment.
Running from Thursday, July 10 through Sunday, July 13, Bluesfest
International is a celebration of classic blues supported by "OLG Presents
Music", a touring summer-long series of sponsorships for local musical events.
The summer series is one more way that OLG creates "Everyday
Possibilities" for the people of Ontario. "We are proud to be bringing back
OLG Presents Music for a second year, " said CEO Kelly McDougald. "Our revenues
directly benefit not only healthcare and learning, but also communities
throughout Ontario. OLG is committed to be a great partner in the communities
in which we operate, and supporting music events reflects this commitment."
"Presents Music" is actively supporting 20 different festivals and
community celebrations being held across Ontario now through the Labour Day
weekend, contributing a total of $657 thousand dollars in sponsorship support.

upcoming events, is available by visiting www.olg.ca/music.
