The Carol Brunettes are back for their 4th year, rewriting rock and pop songs into holiday carols, to raise money for the Pike Market Senior Center & Downtown Food Bank, as part of a holiday tradition called “The Great Figgy Pudding!”
Come see our group sing between 6:15pm and 7:15pm tonight outside of All Saints at 5th & Pine in downtown Seattle.
Want to donate to the cause? Donate here, on Carol Brunette member dL’s page (she has a donor who has pledged to match up to $5000 in donations).
A donation of $25 will feed around 40 adults~ Any donation, even just $5 matters. You are helping feed and provide other important support to the low income and homeless folks in our area. Wish you could donate more, but can’t? Share this blog post, our Facebook Event page, or the donation link via Facebook, email or Twitter and encourage your friends to join you by making a small donation as well. If you’ve donated here or on our other fundraising page, THANK YOU!
The Carol Brunettes won “Most Creative Performance” in 2010 Figgy Pudding, for their performance of “I Love Mistletoe,” a rewrite of the classic Joan Jett song.
2011 Carol Brunettes: Alida, Carolyn, dL, Harmony, Karianne, Keridwyn, Kristi, Laura, Leah, Somer & Teela!
The event is outdoors! Stay for our set (nine songs), then wander around to listen to the 39 other caroling groups. Pick up a People’s Choice ballot at the info/check in desk and vote for us! But most of all, bundle up and have fun as we sing rewritten songs from Journey, Joan Jett, Lady Gaga and more, for this important cause!
