Kris Orlowski Band @ Team Up benefit January 13th - The Triple Door

Friends and Fans,

Our dear friend Kris Orlowski and his wonderful band are teaming up with the local group Team Up 4 Nonprofits to present an event at the spectacular Triple Door restaurant and music venue on January 13th.

Team up and Kris will be joined on this special evening by the Passenger String Quartet and Star Anna. Team up has given these artists a unique opportunity to be a part of an evening that will be benefiting Climate Solutions.

"Climate Solutions mission is to accelerate practical and profitable solutions to global warming by galvanizing leadership, growing investment and bridging divides. Climate Solutions leads climate and clean-energy initiatives in the Northwest, and builds a strong base for national action. The organization works with business, environmentalists, agriculture, government, and public interest groups. Funds raised will support Climate Solutions' campaign of education, communication, organizing and advocacy throughout the Northwest. Their Civic Engagement Project will recruit and mobilize a diverse network of grassroots advocates in the growing campaign for climate policy action. They will inspire people to individual action and connect them to the larger climate movement." -Team Up Website

Events such as this are an amazing way for the local music community (bands & fans alike) to be involved in real change and progress in a way that is accessible and enjoyable to them. This promotes more giving and more doing- and we support that 100%!

Team Up's story & mission statement:

Team Up for Nonprofits was founded in 2009 by event producer Ryan Hodgson and a group of industry friends and colleagues, with the aim of supporting Seattle nonprofits with event production and fund raising. The team saw well-produced music events as a way for nonprofits to raise funds and generate awareness, that would be accessible to multiple generations—and promote meaningful giving. It seemed natural that two of Seattle’s strengths, music and philanthropy, should join forces to provide a solution.

Team Up for Nonprofits’ mission is to build capacity for nonprofit organizations by cultivating a new generation of engaged supporters through the power of music and social media.
