Dear WIRT revelers,
Thanks to everyone who worked (and played!) so diligently to make Wild Idaho Rising Tide’s (WIRT) Second Annual Celebration and Benefit Concert so successful on Friday evening, March 29. We heartily applaud Kelly Emo, who recruited and organized the musical acts and critiqued and circulated event flyers along with Brian Koepke; Alan Solan, who served as bartender when no one else stepped forward; Jack Porter, who strung decorative lights, Ellen Roskovich, who oversaw kitchen operations, and several volunteers, who folded napkins, cleared tables, and assisted other arrangements. Our deepest appreciation goes to the talented musicians who exuberantly offered us all an uplifting night of inspiring music: the Moscow Volunteer Peace Band, Sharon Cousins, Josh Yeidel, Kelly Emo, Al Chidester, Dan Maher, Henry Willard, Terri Grzebielski, Donna Holmes, Jeanne McHale, Doug Park, and Nels Peterson. We owe special thanks to the Wine Company, for donating (another!) case of wine and a liquor service permit and for supplying low-cost beer for the event, and to these fifteen Moscow and Pullman businesses, who provided raffle items collectively valued at hundreds of dollars.
