It was another great Labor Day weekend at Bumbershoot: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival! We hope you got the chance to see some of your favorite bands (+ discover new ones) and admire the awe-inspiring art displays around Seattle Center. The Vera Project would like to thank Toyota Giving, Free Yr Radio, and KEXP 90.3 for partnering with us for a phenomenal three days. We’re especially grateful for the generous fundraising opportunity we received through Toyota. All your tweets and instagrams with the hashtag #ToyotaGiving helped us to raise $1000 – our goal – and we couldn’t be more ecstatic to put that to good use at Vera throughout this next year! We’d also like to thank all of YOU who supported Vera throughout the weekend! Whether you stopped by our booth in the armory, chatted up our silk screeners at Flatstock, visited our venue to get some great laughs at the comedy shows, or joined us for the live bands and interviews at the Free Yr Radio stage, we had a blast, and hope you enjoyed it too. Thanks for making this year’s Bumbershoot so memorable - we’re already looking forward to the next one!
