Presented by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Washington, Mentoring Matters is an evening affair aimed to shed awareness and keep the BBBS organization in the Bellingham Community. We need the local community to support our mission of mentoring youth facing adversity in Whatcom & Skagit Counties, states the local BBBS Organization. So come down to the Boundary Beer Garden and enjoy live music, entertainment, raffles and make a financial pledge to prove “Mentoring Matters” in our community! All proceeds from the night will benefit the Children served by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of NW WA.
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.
The benefit will feature performances by local rock ‘n roll upstarts So Adult, Sean Meyer’s (of Scary Monster and the Super Creeps fame) newest band Burn Up, and local music institution, and all ages favorite No-Fi Soul Rebellion.
The show is all ages with doors opening at 7:30pm and a $3 cover. Click here to view the Facebook event invitation.
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.
The Late Show season kicks off tonight with a barn burner of a dance party featuring performances by Bellingham’s own soul-punk duo No-Fi Soul Rebellion and Portland, Oregon’s record-scratchin’-sax-blowin’-one-man-can-of-rad Boy Eats Drum Machine with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Washington. The show is 21+ with a $4 cover and the the doors opening @ 10:30pm.
