Wintergrass and Give Big

Wintergrass.  Something magical happens every year in the heart of downtown Bellevue.  Thousands of people gather to learn how to access joy, anytime, anywhere. They learn that a creative spirit smiles inside each and everyone, ready to break into song and dance at the slightest provocation. They learn that music is for everyone and music for a lifetime means always having a friend.  From the youngest to the eldest, beginner to virtuoso, all of these people are infused with an open-hearted spirit of joy and curiosity stoked by a stellar team of music educators.

Oh, and they also attend a 4-day, 5-stage bluegrass and acoustic music festival called Wintergrass. 

The Seattle Foundation is hosting its annual GiveBIG fundraising campaign.  Each year the Foundation supports 1,200 individuals and organizations through this campaign, distributing more than $350,000 in King County. Wintergrass is honored to participate in this campaign.  It’s simple to give.
