South Seattle Cooperative Preschools’ Music Funfest @ online
Mar 27 @ 10:00 am
Spring Virtual Music FunFest presented by SSC Co-op Preschools @ online
Mar 27 @ 10:00 am

What: Spring Virtual Music Funfest sponsored by the SSC Co-Op Preschools
When: March 20, March 27, April 10, and April 24 at 10 am
Where: We’re bringing the music to your home! These concerts are 100% virtual.
Cost: FREE! Donations support scholarship funds for families in need.
How to get tickets and donate: Go to https://tinyurl.com/SSCMusicFest, select one of the event names, and then select the “Tickets” link.

The SSC Co-Op Preschools have been serving West Seattle and beyond for over 75 years. We’ve always been committed to making early childhood education accessible to anyone in our community. In the past, money for scholarships has been raised through in-person fundraising efforts (such as concerts and movie nights). Clearly, these aren’t possible due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 also means that more families in our community need help than ever before. We want to be able to provide West Seattle families with affordable early childhood education, community support, and parent education, regardless of their current financial situation.

As part of this year’s fundraising efforts, the Parent Advisory Committee has organized a series of virtual concerts featuring four amazing children’s musicians. We are committed to making these events accessible for everyone, so the concerts themselves are free and open to the community. Any donations made with your ticket “purchase” will go directly to supporting the musicians and the preschool scholarship fund.
