Here is a fun way people can support climate justice and enjoy some great jazz music and support
SSCAN’s partnership with Green Buildings Now in helping create a South Beacon Hill Resilience Hub.
Vocalist Sherrie Adams and the Forman-Finley Band are performing a concert at the Royal Room on May 7 that will benefit the South Beacon Hill Resilience Hub through Green Buildings Now.
As you may know, the Seattle City Council recently appropriated matching dollars to help complete this community facility, which will provide an extreme-weather refuge for neighbors of Bethany United Church of Christ. The city’s support was based on the strong support from the community, including additional fundraising by Green Buildings Now. Your purchase of benefit concert tickets will help weatherize and decarbonize buildings at the Resilience Hub.
Details are below. Note the two-step process of buying a ticket and reserving a table. If you can share this with SSCAN folks, I would be most grateful. I hope to see you on at the Royal Room on Sunday, May 7, at 5 p.m.
Sunday May 7, 5pm
The Royal Room 5000 Rainier Ave S, Seattle

Cherrie’s warm, pure tone and understated, conversational style, combined with her deep connection with the music, contribute to her compelling authentic style. The band features Steve Forman on guitar, Paul Finley on piano, Rick Leppanen on bass, and Jeff Busch on drums. Clif Swiggett, a frequent guest of the band, will play trombone.
All proceeds will benefit the South Beacon Hill Resilience Hub, where residents will find emergency refuge in a fossil-fuel-free building powered by sunlight and battery storage. The Resilience Hub, located at Bethany United Church of Christ, also houses nonprofit community service and advocacy organizations that operate year-round.
Concert proceeds will help weatherize buildings and replace oil and gas energy systems with clean electric systems such as heat pumps. This will mean healthier air, greater energy efficiency, and fewer climate-disrupting greenhouse gas emissions.
