At the Juno Gala Dinner & Awards in Calgary on April 2, (the day before the awards show ceremony,) Arcade Fire will receive their 2016 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award after raising roughly $9.6 million, trained volunteers, and played for over 500,000 fans in the fight for the people of Haiti.
"It is an honour. We are very thankful," said Regine Chassagne in a statement. "It helps us continue the work." In 2006, Arcade Fire began donating a dollar of each concert ticket sold to Partners in Health, the nonprofit organization that helps provide health care to areas of the world that are poverty-stricken.
