Live music and a good cause seem to go hand-in-hand. So kicking off a month of fund-raising and awareness with two regionally popular musical acts is a great idea—especially when the party is located at a favorite local eatery and sponsored in part by a Southeastern craft brewery!
Save the Gulf is a program of the Mobile Baykeepers organization, whose mission is to provide citizens a means to protect the beauty, health and heritage of the Mobile Bay Watershed. By attending any of their fund-raising events, your donation will assist with their hands-on activities and their awareness campaigns.
August 1, 2010, is the first day of the Save the Gulf campaign. Through Labor Day, you are encouraged to participate as often as possible in their efforts and to help spread the word about the work they do to keep our waterways clean and ecologically sound.
The first event will be held at The Hangout in Gulf Shores, so plan to have dinner there while enjoying the performances.
For a donation of only $10, you will be treated to the music of Wes Loper, who combines country, rock, folk, beach and blues styles to make his mark on the music world. His appearance alone would be more than worth the small donation, but with a start time of “SweetWater 4:20 p.m.,” that’s just the first part of the event. Following him is Wet Willie with Jimmy Hall and the Hurricane Horns, cranking up their Southern rock sounds with high energy.
Between songs, be sure to tell the folks from SweetWater Brewing Company how much you appreciate their involvement in this and other environmental programs they support.
