June has been a busy month for Dan Aykroyd. On June 9th, he performed a free Blues Brothers concert with James Belushi, the brother of Mr Aykroyd’s late Blues Brother partner, John Belushi.

The show raised $100,000 in donations, which Eblen Charities, serving western North Carolina, will use to create the new Seven Falls Foundation. Various creative fund raising events and partnerships with companies, municipalities or other organizations enable Eblen to assist families and children who are battling the effects of illnesses and disabilities by providing medication, travel to hospital and information services. They also offer emergency services in the form of rent payment, utility assistance and food, and much more. Eblen hopes to increase their outreach from the 65,000 needy last year to 75,000 this year.

Last weekend Mr Aykroyd hosted the Niagara Wine Auction, featuring world class Ontario VQA wines and the finest food at some of the most beautiful wineries in Niagara. The 1,100 seats were sold out for the $500-a-plate fundraiser. Besides mingling with winemakers, wine tasting and celebrity chef food, guests bid on wine packages, merchandise and getaways. Proceeds will benefit SickKids Foundation and St. Catharines General Hospital Foundation.
