The Independents are a real life outreach organization based out of Oakville, Ontario. They do some amazing community work, fund-raise for good causes and work to make their part of the world a kinder and safer place. The Independents are also in GCG and represented by Toaster and Sabrina Dementros. In GCG they are known for their tribute concerts where they create avatars to dress up as famous bands on virtual stages to delight audiences and raise money for charities using a fun event. Their most recent success was the ZZ Top Tribute held on September 24th. All proceeds from this event went to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
The following is care of a notecard from Toaster Dementros. I am reprinting it here with his permission:
"On behalf of myself, Sabrina and the real life Independents, we want to Thank each and every one of you that attended and donated to our fundraiser.
