The Legend Grows! #BHBP4

The Legend Grows! #BHBP4

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.

Love,
–SOD S.C.

#BigHeartsAndBackpacks3 RECAP + Thank You’s.

#BigHeartsAndBackpacks3 RECAP + Thank You’s.

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.

We’re still getting phone calls, text messages & emails about how wonderful the Pono Ranch party was thanks to The Magician on a Motorcycle, The Little Donuts, & Halycon Daze, and now that the photos have been posted to facebook — you can show your friends and/or piece together some fuzzy memories!

SAVE THE DATE! #BH&BP3 Coming August 27!

SAVE THE DATE! #BH&BP3 Coming August 27!

You read that right, SAVE THE DATE!

Thursday, August 27th @ the Pono Ranch in Ballard: The Soldiers of Destiny Scooter Club Present: Big Hearts & Backpacks 3 to benefit the children of Safe Place in Everett, WA.

The third installment of #BigHeartsAndBackpacks3 will bring us to the shores of Ballard in Seattle for an evening of music, jokes, magic, slip-n-slides (not really), and high-fives with Seattle’s token idiots! As for the nitty gritty details, we’re keeping those a surprise until we deem it necessary for the babysitters to secure new door locks and soundproof their windows.

It’s gonna be loud, funny, and most of all – philanthropic in its most obnoxiously-fun form. Be there for a good cause, and bring your friends!

<3,
–Soldiers of Destiny SC
