Hiawatha concert tomorrow night: Bring food – not just for you

August 4, 2010 at 10:11 pm | In Fun stuff to do, How to help, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Hundreds of people spread out across the east lawn at Hiawatha Community Center last Thursday night to enjoy the first of this year’s Summer Concerts at Hiawatha, presented by the Admiral Neighborhood Association (co-sponsored by local businesses including WSB) – and you’re invited to join the fun again tomorrow night for concert #2: 6:30 pm, with Back Burner onstage playing bluegrass. ANA president Katy Walum says kids can get free face-painting (2 painters will be there!) – the concert of course is free – but tomorrow night, please bring nonperishable food and/or money for the West Seattle Food Bank. Katy shares this note from WS Food Bank’s Anna Guitchounts:

The West Seattle Food Bank would like to thank the Admiral Neighborhood Association, Hiawatha Community Center, and all of the sponsors and community supporters of the Summer Concert Series at Hiawatha Community Center this year. We are very honored to be the recipient of the donations collected at the concert being held this Thursday August 5th. Last fiscal year this agency provided food and other supplies to families in need more than 36,000 times. The support of our community is essential in helping us fulfill this need. We thank you for your support of this event and the West Seattle Food Bank and we look forward to seeing you there!

Here’s our as-it-happened coverage from last Thursday’s concert – and the current forecast for Thursday night.


  1. It would be really great to get some food trucks at the concert. Any chance?

  2. I believe we mentioned in a previous update that they’d extended an open invitation and were trying to contact some as well. Haven’t heard of any takers yet …
