Friday night I was incredibly excited to attend my second Gigs4Good benefit presented by the amazing Team Up for Nonprofits. The evening benefited an organization called Outdoors for All, which provides children and adults with mental, physical and sensory disabilities the chance to enjoy outdoor sports. Thanks to sponsors like REI and Stevens Pass, the concert was able to donate a large portion of ticket sales to Outdoors for All, as well as raise extra money selling raffle tickets at the event.
Three bands performed Friday evening at The Tractor Tavern in Ballard – River Giant, Smokey Brights and two members of The Head and the Heart, Josiah and Charity Rose. Here are a few photos I managed to snap!
