Rockin' for The RE Store

The second annual Rockin’ for The RE Store, a benefit concert, raffle, and auction to support The RE Store’s Community Jobs Training program. This free for all-ages event.

The event includes live music from The Legendary Chucklenuts and High Mountain String Band, a silent auction with incredible items donated by generous local businesses, and a raffle of big prizes totaling over $4,000! All proceeds from the evening go to support The RE Store’s efforts to combat joblessness in Whatcom County.

Community Jobs strengthens Whatcom County by investing in those who need help the most. By giving displaced workers the skills and confidence to support themselves, we’re helping to increase local jobs and prevent homelessness. Last year we raised $10,000 and this year we’re trying to double our impact by raising $20,000. By doubling our impact, we’ll be able to support our 2018 goals of developing new curricula for trainees who demonstrate an aptitude for design and carpentry, manufacturing, salvage and deconstruction (construction trades), custodial, and sustainable gardening to be taught by store staff.

Before you come to this fun benefit, make sure to pick up advanced raffle tickets from The RE Store. Raffle tickets are $5 and can be purchased at The RE Store on Meridian and Broadway St starting in April. Raffle tickets limited to 1,000.
