The holiday season is the perfect time to give the gift of charity to our Island nonprofits. For the seventh year, Vashon Events is hosting a “one call for all event” in which local musicians perform holiday songs to raise money for the Island’s nonprofit organizations. For the first time, the event will be presented at The Open Space for Arts & Community and we are super excited about that!
The music will be presented by ensembles and soloists, each performing one holiday song of their choice. Each act is vastly difference, from songs that are uplifting and hymnal to silly and fun. Performers of all ages are featured. Throughout the evening, 12-15 songs will be performed, each by a different act. Together, the performances create an unforgettable journey of experiencing an immense variety of Island musicianship and interpretations of songs that will leave you with a smile on your face!
Audience members are each given an envelope listing the nonprofit organizations and may donate any amount to one or more. Over twenty nonprofits are listed on the envelope with a place to write in the name of others.
All the nonprofits on the island can join in the fun, and benefit from the extraordinary night of song and community. Nonprofit representatives are invited to present their story between acts.
Allison Shirk will emcee the evening. The event is produced by Pete Welch and Allison Shirk of Vashon Events. This show will be fun, festive and for a great cause. Prepare yourself for a wonderful night of music featuring some really amazing musicians performing holiday songs.”
