Arts Corps’ La Fest del Arte: last night at the Triple Door

| May 9, 2008

Caffe Vita was excited to sponsor Arts Corps’ La Festa del Arte, a benefit last night at the Triple Door. Arts Corps raised over $140,000, which will help continue their amazing work fostering creative habits in young people of Seattle. The hard-working Lisa Fitzhugh, who founded Arts Corps over six years, has stepped down as executive director, so the night was tribute to her as well.

The kids who performed were absolutely amazing! Unbelievable breakdancing and drumming, intense poetry, incredible singing, and a moving video dedicated to Lisa. Stone Gossard and the Hank Williams Choir closed out the night with an unreal show, including performances by Paul Rucker and Vince Mira (who has the most uncanny Johnny Cash voice).
