Hi folks - I've not been very active in SAURs, but appreciate what is being done with meetups across the board (not to mention the help I got from Sara and Noli).
In the winter, I'm super busy running the Seattle Ski & Snowboard Meetup http://www.meetup.com/SkiSeattle and the Seattle Bluegrass Meetup so I don't have time to make the Unicycle events.
The recent disaster at Oso has affected some of us in more ways than others. The entire Washington State Bluegrass society was rocked with possibility that The Darrington Bluegrass Festival may not happen due to the slide. That being said, I've taken it upon myself to bring community together to benefit those that need it most by hosting a benefit at The Nectar Lounge next Wednesday at 8pm.
We've received a huge outpouring of help from local businesses. Sponsors/benefactors include:
•Darrington Bluegrass Festival
•Mervin Mfg. (home of Lib-Tech & Gnu snowboards)
•Seattle Ski & Snowboard
I don't feel my participation warrants posting a meetup on SAUR's Website, but would like to invite all of you to participate if you can - Active organizers in SAURs are encouraged to cross post this event if you are able & willing.
All proceeds go to North County Family Services, which is the only 501-C3 in Darrington and goes directly to the families & community of Oso (unlike the corporate donations stations (Red Cross and others) that eat up a large chunk to feed their corporate machine).
Come out, have some fun, hear some live music and help the folks at Oso!
It feels GOOD TO GIVE!
