A HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to the 4th Annual Turn It Down Concert this past weekend. Over 250 attendees rocked out with us at the Kirkland Teen Union Building (KTUB) Saturday night. Local bands 4th Avenue, Bad Timing and Daphne Loves Derby played to the packed house while our staff were hard at work selling raffle tickets, creating custom molded earplugs at cost, and informing youth, musicians and parents on ways in which they can protect their hearing.
Through the door entry and raffle ticket purchases we were able to raise $1030 to be split between KTUB for the purchase of hearing protection at all their future shows, and long time patient Tom Guidon to help fund his trip to the 2009 Deaflympics.
Stay tuned for details on the 5th annual Turn It Down: an EAR-Responsible Concert.
