When All Star Opera and Respect My Region teamed up again for the second annual Seattle World Tour, there was one goal in mind; make a bunch of money for charity. Last year, our community helped raise over $700 and four cars full of clothing donations. This year, we hope to surpass that and then some. That’s why we reached out to Jones Soda Co., arguably the largest soda manufacturer based in Seattle. Together, we created the Seattle World Tour Special Edition Jones Soda collection.
Starting January 3rd, you will be able to bid online for each bottle to raise money to donate to Mary’s Place for their No Child Sleeps Outside campaign. Within the collection are mini-collections based on what night of the world tour the bottle corresponds to. Once that event is over, however, the auction will close on those items.
We strongly encourage attending the night of the show for the bottle which you are bidding on so that you can go home with it that evening. If you have already made a bid on a bottle and would like to attend the show for free, please email Respect My Region. If you’re a home-body, feel free to bid away and have the bottle mailed when you win!
Any donation is still a donation, no matter how small. If you get outbid or soda just isn’t your thing, but you would still like to make a donation, click here.
