The holiday season is the perfect time to give the gift of charity to our Island nonprofits. For the sixth 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 Vashon Center for the Arts and is sponsored by John L. Scott Vashon in partnership with Vashon Center for the Arts. Will Sing for Vashon will be on Friday, December 7th at 7:30pm.
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. Please bring a checkbook or cash to donate to your Island nonprofit of choice.
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. In the past, two dozen acts perform throughout the night and this year is no exception.
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. Refreshments will be available in the lobby at VCA and it promises to be a very festive evening of music. Welch commented that he is very excited about this year’s event, “We’d like to thank Vashon Center for the Arts for hosting the show in at the Katherine L. White Theater and also John L. Scott Vashon for sponsoring the event. 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.”
