WINTHROP MUSIC ASSOCIATION
2010 WINTHROP RHYTHM & BLUES FESTIVAL SUCCESS
LEADS TO COVE FOOD BANK DONATION
Winthrop, WA – (August 20, 2010) Spectacular weather, a world class lineup and fabulous performances helped make the 23rd Annual Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival this summer the most successful since the non-profit Winthrop Music Association took over the event six years ago.
This year’s headliners Buckwheat Zydeco and Little Feat helped pull the largest crowds the event has seen in years. As a result, the Winthrop Music Association [WMA] has been able to make a $1,500 donation to the Cove Food Bank in Twisp, WA. For every dollar donated the food bank can leverage twelve dollars worth of food distributed.
