Oso Benefit at Nectar Lounge

Members of the local bluegrass community of W. Washington are coming together to perform a benefit concert at Nectar Lounge in Fremont on April 23rd (1 month, 1 day after the mudslide at Oso). All proceeds go to the victims and communities of Oso and Darrington.

From Diana Morgan - director of The Darrington Bluegrass Festival: 
The North County Family Services Relief Fund is the best place to send money for the victims of the mud slide.  That money will go directly to the ones who need it. 
I looks like you have the address and everything you need.  We appreciate you all so much for this kind gesture.  I am speaking for our town and all those directly effected by the mud slide.  We have found that there are so many loving and caring people out there. 

Thanks again 
Diana Morgan

Also, from  Kristy-lee Nahley with North Counties Family Services.
I am trying to let people who are holding benefits know that we are still welcoming money donations to our account North Counties Family Services Relief Fund at Coastal Bank. We are also a license 501(c)3, the only one in Darrington and we have been working very hard since the day of the slide to help everyone in the community. However our information is not as widely known because we are such a small organization. We have been working in Darrington for 20 years now and plan on working here for many more. If you would like more information on how to donate to us, you can call me at [masked] or mail us at North Counties Family Service Relief Fund P.O Box 1103 Darrington Washington 98241. Thank you so much for all you are doing to help support!

All proceeds go directly to the families and victims, it's not a big corporate conglomerate that sucks out a big chunk to feed their employees.

    I just heard that another $112 was collected among the last folks leaving by passing around a pitcher and the Nectar Lounge kicked in the remaining $266 to bump the balance up to an even $5000!!

    Thanks Pat! Great event for a very worthy cause. Sorry I wasn't more social, seems I was involved in some 420 pre-function. That just makes me want to listen to the music, and enjoy. Hope to catch up with you and the group on the rides this year.

    Pat, those pictures are amazing. You've got a great little camera there. What is it? Thanks for putting this event on and for inviting us all to it. It was so much fun. Your band is fabulous too.

    And I won a snowboard. Reckon I'll fit it to the FJR and use it as a picnic table.

      Or you could take up snowboarding (or pass it on to one of your daughters) - OR auction it on eBay. Will likely fetch a couple of Franklin's!

    Awesome! We raised $4622 for Oso! Thanks SO much to everybody that came out and helped make this event a success! Congrats to Chris (won the Fireball snowboard), Jennifer Graves (won the Sturtevant's grab bag & super tune and Harley Rental) and Lidia Edwards (won the other Harley Rental). In all fairness - everybody that came out was a Winner - you all won the hearts of the community of Oso and Darrington!

    A friend of mine in the bluegrass scene lost a family member at Oso. She'll be speaking at the event so everybody can put a face with the disaster.

    A little bluegrass a little motorcycle ride and commradery. Sounds like a good time and a good cause. Looking forward to it

      The rumor mill says if the weather is nice a ride will be put together for this (easier on the parking in Fremont too!)

      April 19, 2014

    • Seattle P.

      I tried, but couldn't get MC parking there - no reserved parking or extra space in back. Sorry! :(

      April 21, 2014

  • Shane

    Parking on Fremont is terrible. Ride your motorcycle if you can and parking will be a lot easier. Hopefully the evening will be dry enough.

    A member emailed me and commented "I'd go, but I don't like bluegrass" - hey folks... let's not lose focus on the big picture!! This is a BENEFIT for the folks that lost EVERYTHING in the Oso mudslide. Shouldn't that be the main point of focus over one's musical taste (or anything else for that matter)? Besides helping some people out that REALLY need it right now, we have some great stuff donated by many local companies - Tim also emailed me last night and said he was given a Mac Tools biker jacket he will be bringing for the raffle donation as well. --- Just Sayin'

    This looks fun. I'll see if I can get the evening free from work

    April 12, 2014

    • Seattle P.

      Thanks Jeff- I'm hoping some biker-folks turn out so someone that actually rides gets the Harley raffle (of course, I will buy tickets too and crossing my fingers it's me!)

    If we can get 1-2% of the members to step up and attend, that would be around 20 people representing this motorcycle meetup. The communities of Oso and Darrington will be grateful for your support
