WASHFEST RAISES OVER $32,000 TO HELP FIND A CURE FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER
HOUSTON (January 21, 2014)… The 4th Annual WashFest, held in East Bernard, TX, raised over $32,000 for Snowdrop Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer and to providing scholarships for college-bound pediatric cancer patients and childhood cancer survivors.
WashFest is Texas music festival and a 2-person-per-team washer tournament. It was conceived and still hosted by Texas band, The Washers, who wanted to give back to the community and make a difference with this unique event.
Kevin Kline, The New 93Q Country Morning Co-Host and President of Snowdrop Foundation explains, “The Washers are definitely the real deal musically evidenced by their album “Tired Eyes” being named Album of the Year at the 2013 Texas Music Awards.” Kline adds, “But their immense talent is surely surpassed by their generous hearts and humility.”
A total of 132 teams participated in this year’s tournament. Doug Macha & Skeeter Wilson won their 3rd title in 4 years.
Over 700 patrons enjoyed Texas music from Kyle Park, The Washers, Two Tons of Steel & Bri Bagwell, Justin van Sant, Kylie Rae Harris, Matt Caldwell and Zane Williams.
Matt Kopycinski founding member of The Washers says, “Whether you come to participate in the tournament or to hear the bands and dance the night away, WashFest is a great experience. And to partner with Snowdrop Foundation is extra meaningful because we know kids from our hometown who have been touched by childhood cancer.”
