Concert on the Green

Concert on the Green supports local organizations

The Lisa Halverson Foundation, Fireweed Meadows Vacation Rentals and Coastal Realty Alaska are partnering to host “Concert on the Green” all day Sunday, July 18, at the Fireweed Meadow Golf Course in support of the Anchor Point Food Pantry and Chapman School Music Program. Admission is a suggested donation of $10 per family or a food donation to the Anchor Point Food Pantry.

The event will feature all-day concerts, including Alaska’s Hobo Jim, Angie McDermott, Jonathan Crocker, English Bay Band and more. Additionally, more than 30 vendors have signed up to sell homemade goods, crafts and food, and a disc golf tournament will be held during the day.

“The goal is just to provide a really fun community event that fundraises and supports the Anchor Point community and is a place for people to get together and have a good time in an outdoor environment,” said Allison Trimble Paparoa, owner of Coastal Realty. “That’s our main goal is to have more opportunities to support people, to get together and support the surrounding area.”

All proceeds will go to the Anchor Point Food Pantry and Chapman School Music Program. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair for the day.
