ArtsFund is the featured beneficiary of Little Big Show #10 on November 15, featuring Ben Gibbard, best known as lead vocalist and guitarist for the band Death Cab for Cutie! Starbucks is teaming up with KEXP and Seattle Theatre Group to present this concert at the Neptune Theatre.  100% of ticket sales will be donated to ArtsFund, and will be used as matching funds for projects that focus on youth engagement and education.

“We are excited to once again team up with our long-time partners KEXP and STG to host the 10th Little Big Show,” said Rodney Hines, director of Community Investments for Starbucks. “We look forward to bringing the community together in support of local arts education programs, while celebrating Seattle’s musical heritage. And I can not think of a better way to commemorate our 10th Little Big Show than with ArtsFund whose work truly is to make arts accessible to all and valued as central and critical the health of our community.”

“We are grateful to Starbucks, KEXP and STG for their dedication to arts education and for partnering with us,” said Mari Horita, President & CEO, ArtsFund, in a statement. “Each ticket purchased for Little Big Show will go directly toward matching funds for projects focused on youth programs such as artist classroom visits and residencies, scholarships for low-income youth to professional arts training, or free tickets to a variety of local music, theater and arts events.”

Since the inaugural show in 2012, the Little Big Show concert series has collectively raised more than $100,000 for local arts nonprofits. The money donated has funded nine local initiatives that provide arts education, such as after-school classes, tutoring and scholarships for young people in Seattle through organizations such as Youth In Focus, The Vera Project and Hugo House to name a few.
