Two Curry County-based music nonprofits are raffling a custom-made, $2,000 ukulele that will be awarded during the Wild Rivers Music Festival in Brookings this August.
“The fundraiser will benefit both organizations in their efforts to provide local music events and music education in the schools,” said ukulele builder Les Stansell, of the Pistol River Concert Association (PRCA).
The PRCA has joined with the Brookings-based Stagelights Musical Arts Community, which is hosting the Wild Rivers Music Festival on Aug. 15-16 at the Azalea Park ballfield.
