Seattle Area Hurricane Relief Concert

Hey YFF's...I know all the Hurricane stuff is being posted on JoMomma, but I'm posting this here cos it's local. I got this e-mail from the event coordinator, and he asks that it be passed on...
It is also posted on Alan White's website (drummer for YES). I'm assuming his band White will be playing as he is a board member for Music Aid Northwest.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HURRICANE RELIEF CONCERT PLANNED

For more information e-mail Lori: tonguelady at hotmail (dot) com

David Harris producer of the Issaquah and nearby community Summer concerts announced yesterday that a special concert to raise money to assist the Hurricane Relief fund will be held in Issaquah. The Issaquah Concert for Hurricane Relief will be held Tuesday, September 6th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 pm on the lawn at the Issaquah Community Center. The concert jointly sponsored by the City of Issaquah and Music Aid Northwest will be free, donations to benefit the hurricane relief will be collected.
The hurricane, and the damage that has followed have been called the worst natural disaster ever in the United States of America. "We are a country that gives when other nations need help. Right now, our own country is in dire need of help, and some of the most caring people live right here in Issaquah - and in our neighboring communities," Remarked Harris.

Donations raised at the concert will go directly to Music Aid Northwest (a 501-c3 group), (www.musicaidnorthwest.com) which will distribute the money to the Red Cross and any other related charities. "This promises to be a major concert," says David Harris, Vice President for Music Aid Northwest. Many Northwest performers have agreed to play at the concert.

"We have already been contacted by a few businesses that are pledging donations, and hope to receive much more corporate sponsorship," stated Harris. Issaquah mayor, Ava Frisinger, Metropolitan King County Council members David Irons, Kathy Lambert and Issaquah Chamber ex executive director Suzanne Suther are among those who have volunteered to be at the event to make opening remarks.

"We were thrilled to hear last night’s concert audience clapping and cheering so enthusiastically, following our announcement that there would be an Issaquah Concert for Hurricane Relief," Harris continued. The Issaquah concerts have been an ongoing summer series for the past nine years and have grown immensely in popularity

Harris asks anyone who would like to help or volunteer before, during or after the concert to please contact him at davidwh@nwlink.com or 425-392-6342

The Issaquah Community Center lawn is in the heart of old downtown Issaquah. Take exit 17 off 1-90, south on Front Street and left on Bush Street.
