Steelback Brewery C.E.O. Throws a Celebration Party for Canadian Troops Returning From Afghanistan!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 24, 2007) - Mr. Frank D'Angelo, President and C.E.O. of Steelback Brewery and D'Angelo Brands is at it again in support of Canadian troops. Frank and his band, Steelback 2-4, are once again slated to bring down the house as he throws a party for Canadian troops worthy of a hero's welcome, this time at CFB Petawawa Saturday April 28th for the 1st Battalion The Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group. Hot off his recent trip to Edmonton to entertain troops there, D'Angelo explains why showing support for our troops is very important. "It's just our way of saying thanks for all their hard work and dedication. It's tough out there and they deserve a little fun."

Of course it goes without saying Mr. D'Angelo will be providing ample quantities of Steelback Premium Canadian beer for the troops, and he's also bringing along a few Hall of Famer, hockey legend friends in the form of Dennis Hull and Phil Esposito, making it a night to remember for all our dedicated soldiers who have been stationed far from their family and friends during their recent tours of duty. "We come out here, sing a few songs, drink some beer, share a few hockey stories, have some food and have a good time. They deserve our thanks." The plight of our soldiers has long caught Frank's interest as we all struggle to understand the hardships of a war fought far, far away.

As many of you already know Mr. D'Angelo and his band are no strangers to great causes as evidenced by their previous releases of songs to raise money for charitable causes "My Girl", "Stand By Me", "We're Here For A Good Time" and Steelback 2-4's debut album You Gotta Believe to Believe. "Our troops need to know that no matter where they are fighting across the globe our thoughts and prayers are right there with them."
