In light of the horrific events surrounding the earthquake this week in Haiti, the Lincoln Theatre has announced that net proceeds from Cambalache, the Northwest’s hottest live salsa band, will be donated to the William J. Clinton Foundation. Ticket prices have been dropped to $15 general admission, to allow as many community members as possible to come together and make an impact in the face of a world tragedy. To take part in this benefit, visit www.lincolntheatre.org or call 360-336-8955.
“The Lincoln is a platform for connecting our community, making it a perfect place to respond to this tragedy together,” says Lincoln Theatre Executive Director Thom Mayes. “The scope of the devastation in Haiti is unimaginable, but as a community which cares about the world’s people, we have much to offer if we come together to help out.” In addition to the event, the Lincoln Theatre will collect donations by cash, check and credit card to deliver to the Clinton Foundation Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund in the name of the residents of Skagit County. Donations may be made at the box office, 712 South First Street in downtown Mount Vernon.
Cambalache has broken attendance records at virtually every salsa club in the Northwest, with performances including Bumbershoot, NW Folklife, and the 2001 MLB All-Star Game. As the Everett Herald says, “expect a festive atmosphere created by one of the northwest’s best salsa bands!” Their show is a high-energy celebration of music and dance and creates the ideal venue for gathering our community to make a difference in the lives of others.
