If you haven’t heard yet, the local Rotary Club has put together a new Seattle area beer festival.

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Music4Life, which expands music to youth in schools. Music4Life is a program to benefit elementary (fourth and fifth grade students) in Highline Public Schools. The program is a collaboration between Highline Public Schools, the Rotary Club of Des Moines and many individuals and businesses, partnering to expand music education for all children in the Highline School District. The program provides access to instruments to students who otherwise would not be able to afford to be involved in music programs.

The music lineup includes great blues from Dudley Taft, Becki Sue and her Big Rockin’ Daddies, the Cold Shot Band, the Stacy Jones Band and Rod Cook.

  1. Looking forward to attending this. Love blues, love brews, and am glad to contribute to a cause like Music4Life to help local schoolkids get musical instruments. The event planners also have great food there so be sure to bring a few extra bucks for the tri-tip and other delights and beer!
