This Month We're Gleefully Giving To Girls

Girls Rock! Benefit (Friday, May 1)
Girls Rock! is a nonprofit organization working to encourage positive self-esteem in girls and emphasize the importance of creative expression through music. Donations to help them grow here in Seattle will be gratefully accepted at the female-fronted band showcase this Friday: Whiskey Romance, Danielli, and Lucy Bland. Bands begin at 9pm. 21+

Breast Cancer 3-Day Benefit:
Mother's Day (Sunday, May 10)

Two of us Skylark employees are walking 60 miles (!) in the Breast Cancer 3-Day this September.

On Mother's Day, a portion of brunch sales will go directly to Team Tracy. We're all ages all day and night on Sundays, so bring grandma and the baby.

Or join us that evening for the Karaoke Auction. Also all ages, full bar with ID. Bid on your friends and family! When the moment of truth arrives you can choose to sing your highest bid or top it and sing whatever the heck you want. 100% of bids go to Team Tracy.

3. Can't make it but want to donate or want more info about the charities you'll be supporting at these events? Go to the Breast Cancer 3-Day site. Just click on Donate Now and search for my personal fundraising page (my full last name: Summa-Kusiak).
