The concert benefits Seattle Children’s Hospital, and all proceeds go to the hospital’s uncompensated care fund.
Seattle Children’s Hospital gives essential health care to children in Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho regardless of a family’s ability to pay. In 2014, Seattle Children’s used more than $1.7 million of uncompensated care fund dollars to provide care to children from Clallam County.
