The Seattle Children’s Hospital is not just a hospital but it is also a research center that sees hundreds of thousands of patients per year, not to mention the millions of dollars worth of pro-bono work that is done. The hospital’s mission is simply to “care for every child in our region, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.” Aspiring to “provide the safest, most effective care possible. Control and reduce the cost of providing care. Find cures and educate clinicians and researchers. Grow responsibly and provide access to every child who needs us.”
On December 14th Downtown at the Showbox there is a benefit show where the community has a chance to thank the work that the staff and volunteer members of the Seattle Children’s Hospital give tirelessly by donating. This will be the second year that local radio station KEXP is hosting Seattle Musicians for Children’s Hospital or SMooCH. “KEXP is honored to help curate such an incredible night for our music scene and for our children,” said John Richards, KEXP Morning Show Host/Producer. This year’s lineup is an amazing, diverse mix of some of the best established and emerging Pacific Northwest talent”.
This years lineup is promised to be pretty incredible, with performances by local Indie artist Shelby Earl, The Helio Sequence, the funky, soulful, and always enjoyable Allen Stone, and The Lonely Forest.
Not only will attendees enjoy a night full of music, there will also be a silent auction where guests can bid and support the local hospital, it’s patients, and families. All proceeds will be going to the hospital, so why not come out and show your support for those who support you!
