Congrats to the folks who snagged their tickets to Big Hearts & Backpacks 6 early! The $10 tickets are officially sold-out and we are now in the $12 tier where you can still save a few bucks over purchasing at the door ($15) to see DJ Mayhem, Duke Evers and win some of our raffle prizes.
And even if you can’t make the show but still wanna help – drop a $5 spot into the “Donation” portion of the ticket link!
Thank you again for all of your support – NONE of this is possible without you.
Has it been an entire YEAR already?!?! Time flies when you’re living slow, so let’s get right to it…
TICKETS ARE ON-SALE for this year’s #BigHeartsAndBackpacks party at Pono Ranch! Featuring performances from our friends in My Goodness, KEXP DJ Michele Meyers, and hosted by the hilarious Scott Carty – this year is certainly the biggest yet!
Per usual we will have food & drink specials, but we encourage you to bring a backpack for the kids at Safe Place. Anybody who brings a backpack will automatically receive 5 FREE Raffle Tickets to use towards any of the prizes we’ll be giving away throughout the night!
HURRY – once these $10 tickets are gone the price will go up!
The first 50 tickets sold-out almost immediately and have now jumped to a whopping $12, but those will soon be gone and will jump up again!
Don’t be left out of one of the best parties of the year (all for aterrific cause) and BUY YOUR TICKETS to see HOBOSEXUAL, Lonesome Shack, and DJ Indica Jones perform live!
Don’t forget that Fred Meyer will be having a “Back To School” sale just a few blocks away and you can pick up a children’s backpack on the CHEAP for some free raffle tickets that could score you a plethora of awesome prizes!
The time has come to gather all the strengths of the universe for one night of fun, fundraising, and partying at the Pono Ranch in Ballard for #BigHeartsAndBackpacks4!
Can you believe it’s been four years since we started this thing? Collecting backpacks and school supplies for Safe Place was just gonna be a one-time thing, but the people demanded that the goodwill and charitable vibes continue… so who are we to disagree?
8/25/16 — Pono Ranch
This year will feature DJ Indica Jones, The Lonesome Shack, and HOBOSEXUAL on the stage, and we’ll have plenty of games, raffle prizes, and food + drink specials to keep you happy throughout the evening.
Get your tickets HERE and we’ll see you in a few weeks, amigos.
Just as fast as it arrived… #BH&BP3 is over. (almost, more on that below)
On behalf of each & every one of our animal-helmet-wearing members: THANK YOU. Expressing our gratitude to each and every person who supported this very worthy cause deserves a medal for their efforts (or at least another beer), and we are confident that the positive cosmic karma you’ve collected by helping the children of Safe Place will be swift. We’re still awaiting the final tally of money, supplies, and backpacks – but there is no doubt that we surpassed our goal of 200 backpacks; a number we kept secret until now.
Seems like yesterday that we started planning this thing, and boom — as of this writing we’re just a little over 24 hours away from throwing a benefit show at Pono Ranch to party & support our friends at Safe Place. For anyone who is already planning to join us tomorrow: THANK YOU in advance. Please bring a friend and prepare to have fun! (protip: do some pre-party stretching)
