It’ll be UNCORKED & UNPLUGGED, with great wines, food and four acoustic blues performances on both days.
Festivities start at 5 p.m. on Friday, and Noon on Saturday.
The event is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Des Moines/Normandy Park as a benefit for Highline Music4Life and the club’s many other charities.
Music4Life™ (www.Music4Life.org) provides musical instruments to participating schools for students in need. The Seattle-based non-profit acquires “lovingly used” musical instruments from adults who no longer need them, gets them repaired and then provides them to participating public school districts for use by students in need. Besides Seattle Public Schools, Music4Life also operates programs supporting Edmonds, Highline, Mukilteo and Shoreline Public Schools. The program acquires used instruments from adults who understand that their highest and best use is to put them back into play. With adequate resources, Music4Life also buys new musical instruments for schools.
Music4Life™ is supported in part by grants from local Rotary clubs, the Hazel Miller Foundation, First Choice Health; 4Culture (the former Seattle-King County Arts Commission); the Knossos Foundation; various local Rotary and Kiwanis clubs; the Highline Schools Foundation; Nina McLemore LLC; as well as by the law firm of Garvey Schubert Barer; Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the Newspapers in Education Program of The Seattle Times, Cascade Symphony Orchestra, the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 88.5 KPLU Radio, Kennelly Keys Music stores, Music & Arts stores, Rafael Carrabba Violins; Hammond Ashley Violins in Issaquah, the Guitar Center stores and others.
