Soulful Giving Blanket Concert
Where should I be on August 1st? Well August 1st is the day of the 5th annual Soulful Giving Blanket Concert, and that’s where you should be. The Soulful Giving Blanket Concert is an event held on the picturesque Yoshida Estate, along the Sandy River in Gresham Oregon. It’s a benefit concert to help pediatric cancer research, care and treatment within the local region. The event is a whole lot of fun going from 11:00 am to 9:00pm for person 21 years of age and up. The affair provides a shuttle service from Mount Hood Community College to the Yoshida Estate, which has very limited parking. The concert features the best of the best, such as Portland Soul All-Stars, Ants in the Kitchen, Paul Creighton Band, and Patrick Lamb. A meal is included with your ticket, and you will have a choice between some of the finest restaurants in Portland. There will great music, and samples of foods from 16 of Portland’s finest restaurants, as well as food concessions, and offerings from over 30 artisan vendors.
It is a great day of fun with the weather usually being quite nice out. The idea behind the blanket concert is that persons can bring their blankets to lay on the grass while enjoying the festivities that are provided. Honestly, it is a blast. Even local wines and brewers are present all for the great cause of defeating cancer. So if you have that day open in your calendar, check it out, you won’t regret it.
