Concert to raise funds for diabetes association

PORT ANGELES — Seattle singer-songwriter Stacey Unck, fresh from the release of her album “Through the Cracks,” will give a free parking-lot concert this Saturday.

Unck, along with cellist Stephanie Roche, will offer acoustic folk and indie rock from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m. in the lot at Jim’s Pharmacy, 424 E. Second St. The pair will play originals from the new CD plus a few covers, Unck said.

Unusual spot

Yes, it’s an unusual spot for a folk concert. But the singer happens to be an acquaintance of Sandy Sinnes, a certified diabetes educator at both Swedish Medical Center in Seattle and Jim’s Pharmacy here. Both women wanted to hold a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association, so they put together Saturday’s event.

Hot dogs will also be free during the concert, while contributions to the diabetes association will be entirely optional.

“We’re hoping people will come and listen, have a hot dog and hopefully make a donation,” said Jim’s Pharmacy staffer Linda Cameron.

In the event of rain, the hot-dog stand will be sheltered by a tent while the musicians move inside, Cameron said. Since Unck and Roche are an acoustic act, they will fit into Jim’s fine, she added.
