Groupon Grassroots Campaign

Salish Sea Players Logo

We’ve got some exciting news: We’re teaming up with Groupon Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, to fund a project impacts our community–coming April 4th! Groupon Grassroots

Grassroots is a community outreach initiative within Groupon that brings people together to do good, have fun, and create positive change in their community. With this initiative, “Baroque Memories-Past & Present”, we hope to raise enough funds to perform at least 10 professional Baroque chamber music concerts, providing much needed social interaction and entertainment in retirement, nursing, and long-term care facilities in the greater Seattle area.

Since you are essential to our success, we want you to be the first to know about our campaign as we start our 2nd year of concerts and service to this deserving community. We have a tipping point of $300—that’s 30 people giving $10 each—after that, Groupon Friends at University House, WallingfordGrassroots gives 100% of the funds raised to the project!!

It’s important that we build momentum for our campaign—here’s how you can help:

  1.  Subscribe to Groupon ( in Seattle before the campaign launch.
  2. Visit the Groupon site on April 4th, when the campaign launches.
  3. Be the first to give by supporting Baroque Memories-Past & Present” and spread the word to friends,family, and colleagues, encouraging them to do the same.

We’ll keep you in the loop and send another update once the campaign launches. Thank you for your support!

What they’re saying:

“The Salish Sea Players came to Merrill Gardens at Northgate in December where I am the Active Living Director and gave a fabulous performance.  Our residents thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful music that they heard!  We invited the Salish Sea Players to come again in JanuarKing for a day at Merrill Gardens, Northgatey and they drew even more of a crowd this time.  As an entertainer myself, I recognize good and talented entertainers when I hear them.

Linda and Olga are without a doubt skilled musicians but are also good entertainers!   You could tell that they were enjoying the music by the way they played.  When they were finished playing, they circulated around the room to speak with our residents.  That in my book, is a mark of a ‘seasoned’ entertainer… when they not only make sure the listener enjoys the music, but also makes them ‘glad they came’!

I highly recommend the Salish Sea Players to any audience!  I guarantee that no one will go away disappointed after their great performance!”   ~Sandra Walker, Active Living Director, Merrill Gardens at Northgate

 “…the residents talked about your performance for days afterward, thank you for coming and good luck with your project.”   ~ B.J. Johnson, La Conner Retirement Inn
