Join us Aug. 18 for a night of blues to support the Sitka Local Foods Network

You’ve heard them play at the Sitka Farmers Market, and now they’re holding a fundraiser for the Sitka Local Foods Network.

The Sitka Blues Band — which features Fred Knowles on guitar, Ritch Phillips on bass, Auriella Hughes on conga drums, Gary Gouker on harmonica, and possibly other musical guests — will play a set or two during its Sitka Summer Blues Party starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18, in the Mean Queen’s downstairs bar. The band is graciously donating its tips from this event to the Sitka Local Foods Network.

People can order pizza, wings and salads from the Mean Queen, and there will be a full bar with a variety of adult beverages available for purchase.

Feel free to stop by and learn more about the Sitka Local Foods Network and some of the work we do around the community. We thank the band for offering us this fundraiser.
