Benefit for the Bellingham Food Bank @ Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

On Saturday, April 13th, the Social & Environmental Justice Committee of the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship will sponsor songwriter Linda Allen, daughters Jen and Kristin Allen-Zito, and a host of special musical friends in a concert in celebration of Linda’s arriving at the half century mark as a working musician. In addition to an evening of wonderful music, every dime after expenses will benefit the Bellingham Food Bank.

The concert will be held at the Bellingham Unitarian Church, 1207 Ellsworth in Bellingham. Tickets are a suggested donation of $15.00 and are available at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please consider bringing non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. Dessert will be served after the concert.

Linda has been a working musician beginning in 1969, writing and singing powerful songs of hope and history, spirituality and death, love and whimsy in a style the writer Studs Terkel once referred to as “true and delightful”. In this concert, she will be celebrating the release of her eleventh and twelfth recordings as well as sharing a retrospective of her life’s work…so far.

Linda’s special guests, in addition to daughters Jen and Kristin, to date include Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis (Rebel Voices), Phil Heaven, Jeff Wilson, Tom Rawson, Jan Peters, Laura Smith, Chad Petersen, Kitty King, Sonny Lowe, Scott Slaba, Meryle Korn, Marie Eaton and Ellen van der Hoeven.

Rockin’ for The RE Store @ Boundary Bay Brewery
May 17 all-day

Come on down and join us on Friday, May 17th, for the 3rd annual benefit show Rockin’ for The RE Store at the Boundary Bay Brewery beer garden. There will raffle prizes, live music, and a silent auction to support the community jobs training program. This event is free for all ages.

This event includes performances by The Legendary Chucklenuts and the High Mountain String Band, an informal auction with wonderful items donated by generous local businesses, and raffling off big prizes worth over $5,000. All of the proceeds from the evening go to support The RE Stores efforts to reduce barriers to employment in Whatcom County.

The Community Jobs Program strengthens Whatcom County by investing in those who need help the most. By giving displaced workers the skills and confidence to support themselves, we’re helping to increase local jobs and prevent homelessness.

Before you come to this fun filled event, make sure to pick up advanced raffle tickets at The RE Store. Raffle tickets are $5 and can be purchased at The RE Store on Meridian and Broadway St starting in April.
