Blues & Blues Brings Joy to the Mountains!
On June 18th, Restore Arts celebrated four years of successful partnership with Peak Events and the Flagstaff Blues & Brews Festival!
Over two thousand concertgoers gathered to enjoy music and local microbrews in the cool pines, and our programs in Northern Arizona benefited greatly.
One highlight of event was a stirring on-stage endorsement by headliner Sugaray Rayford. Sugaray has a long history of supporting music education in both Arizona and California.
The raffle of a guitar signed by members of every group who took the stage helped Restore Arts raise funds for arts education, as did silent auctions of other beautiful instruments.
Just as in years before, representatives from Restore Arts helped manage the kids' area. We brought along a whole raft of instruments to encourage kids to explore music in a safe and casual environment.
Even moms and dads got involved!
Over the last four years, Flagstaff Blues & Brews has helped raise over $25,000 in support of Restore Arts' programs. We're looking forward to an even more prosperous future with the help of organizers Peak Events and the festival's wonderful sponsors.
