Boeing Employees Choir to benefit Highline Music Program Friday, Dec. 6

december-concert-flyer

The Boeing Employees Choir will be featured at a free holiday concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6 at Lake Burien Presbyterian Church, located at 150031 14th Ave. S.W.

Donations will benefit the Highline Music4Life™ program and is sponsored in-part by 4Culture.

Highline Music4Life is the local organization that acquires “lovingly used” musical instruments, gets them repaired if needed, and provides them free of charge to Highline Public Schools for use by students of low income families. The program was created two years ago by the school board and is also sponsored by the Rotary clubs of Des Moines, Burien-White Center and SeaTac. So far, more than 250 musical instruments have been acquired for Highline Schools’ kids.

“You don’t have to be a Rotarian to support Music4Life,” said David Endicott, the organization’s President / CEO. “All that is necessary is to understand the unique value that instrumental music plays in the life and education of a child.”

Research now shows that young people who participate in instrumental music programs tend to do better in math, science, history, literature, languages (both English and foreign), even in computer science and other desirable academic disciplines, Endicott says. “And that’s in addition to what it teaches them in discipline and teamwork.”

Highline Music4Life is supported in-part by grants from 4Culture, First Choice Health, Garvey Schubert Barer, the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence, local Rotary clubs and other local community leaders.

For more information or to donate an instrument to Highline Music4Life, contact David@DavidEndicott.us or call (206) 409-3275 or go to their website at www.HighlineMusic4Life.org. Instrument donation forms are available online, as well as at other designated instrument drop-off sites in South King County.

B-Town DOG’s ‘Pirate Pup Pep Rally’ will be this Sunday, Dec. 1

KellieBassenA ‘Pirate Pup Pep Rally’ will be held this Sunday, Dec 1, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in an effort to drum up support for B-Town DOG’s campaign to win a grant for a new dog park in Burien.

“We are planning an ‘invasion’ of Lakeview Park and the planting of our pirate flag!” Organizer Kellie Bassen told The B-Town Blog. “We will start in Town Square Park (pirate gear optional but encouraged) and march the six blocks to Lakeview where we will plant our flag and claim the park ‘Pirate Territory’!”

The grant is being offered by pet food maker Beneful, which is also providing tennis balls being given away to all four legged pirates at the rally.

“I’m having this rally to promote my (and in turn, Burien’s) Finalist status in the National 2013 Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest and to bring attention to my video entry,” Kellie added.

Here’s her video entry:

Kellie is one of 14 finalists in the nation competing for a $500,000 Dream Dog Park designed by Nate Berkus and the 2013 Beneful Design Team.

“I don’t think I need to tell you what an opportunity this is for the City of Burien, in terms of improving the city and getting some positive publicity on a national level and I want to win,” she said. “I have a really good chance, too. We need to get the word out and get people to vote on the video starring members of the B-Town D.O.G. We are competing against some very large cities, but I know we as a community can do this!”

Andy MacDonald

Here’s more info on Andy and this cause:

Andy was a friend, son, brother and volunteer firefighter, who tragically lost his life in the flooding of the Cowlitz River six years ago. On November 6, 2006, Andy, 19, was on a hunting trip with his family when the river bank that his truck was parked on gave way.

Out of tragedy something good can be born; Andy’s family and close friends set up a scholarship in his name. Each November, in honor of Andy’s birthday and untimely passing an auction is held. This consists of items donated from local business’ and personal items contributed by Andy’s family.

The Andy MacDonald Fire Services Scholarship is set up at the Puget Sound Skills Center where Andy received his firefighting training. This scholarship will assist future cadets in the Puget Sound Skills Center Fire Services class to help with their continued education/training in Firefighting. Andy’s passion in life was to help those in need and this is our way of assisting others with the same life goal.

For more information on Andy MacDonald, here’s a link to a Facebook tribute page, chock full of great photos that will soon make those who didn’t know him feel like they actually did.
