We’re excited to announce that Noise for the Needy, Seattle’s premier benefit music festival, is directing a donation of $19,000 to the Vera Project! The contribution, a surprise gift from an anonymous supporter, was given to challenge the community to step up and support Vera this holiday season. Whether you donate $19 or $19,000, it makes a difference for our programming for all ages.
We thank you, and Noise for the Needy, for your support!Read the full post HERE.
