Every fall a group of harpers from the Portland area gathers to participate in a benefit concert. In recent years the organization chosen as the recipient of funds raised is the local housing charity, the Northwest Pilot Project, which offers assistance to elders 55 and older who are in danger of homelessness. This is an organization I feel delighted to support.
Here’s the news on this year’s event, coordinated by Kathleen Staub and Dale Rhodes:
Harpers for Housing

Requested donation is $10, all of which goes to the NW Pilot Project.
Volunteers, largely lever harp players, will be performing. I’m still choosing a piece or two to play, but had better decide soon.
Have a good evening.
