This Sunday, September 5, following Trivia in the beer garden, Boundary Bay Brewery will be playing host to an all ages benefit concert for Compassionate Friends featuring live performances by So Adult, Burn Up and No-Fi Soul Rebellion. Compassionate Friends is a non-profit organization formed 40 years ago in England to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive. Today more than 600 chapters serving all 50 states plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico offer friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, siblings, grandparents, and other family members during the natural grieving process after a child has died.
Is it too much to ask for good, inexpensive live music that makes you feel like you are doing something good? You know, makes you feel all warm and fuzzy and good karma-y? Boundary Bay Brewery doesn’t think so.
Boundary Bay Brewery is pleased to to be raising the curtain on another season of The Late Show, a series of Friday night bi-monthly benefit concerts in the taproom featuring local, regional and national bands performing to raise money and awareness for Bellingham area non-profit organizations.
