Giving Back: Holiday concert this Saturday to benefit Edmonds School District’s Nourishing Network

holidayThroughout the holiday season, Lynnwood Today will be highlighting charitable organizations or activities that we hope our readers will consider funding as a way of “giving back” to our community.

Tickets are going fast, but it’s not too late to join the Foundation for Edmonds School District this Saturday night, Dec. 6 for the North Sound Church’s holiday benefit concerts, featuring the Mosaic Choir & Orchestra. The 4 p.m. show is sold out, but there are still a few tickets available for the 7 p.m. show. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation and make a monetary gift. All proceeds will directly benefit our Nourishing Network program, which helps feed homeless children and low-income families in the Edmonds School District.

Date: Saturday, Dec. 6
Times: 4 p.m. (sold out) and 7 p.m.
Location: Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA), 410 Fourth Ave N., in downtown Edmonds
Cost: Tickets are $12 each and can be purchased at the box office or at ECA’s website.

Two generous donors will match your donations. An anonymous, individual donor will match up to $20,000 of funds raised, while Campbell Nelson VW/Nissan will match an additional 10 percent of proceeds at each show, up to $50,000.

If you are unable to attend the concerts, but want to donate in support of the Nourishing Network, you may donate online at www.foundationesd.org or mail a check to the Foundation for Edmonds School District, P. O. Box 390, Lynnwood WA 98046. Please indicate the donation is for the “Holiday Benefit Concert.”
