Despite drizzly weather Sunday, about 60 people made their way to Point Robinson to hear the island band Riverbend play a benefit concert for Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS). The band played old-time bluegrass and folk music under a backdrop of the Point Robinson Lighthouse, and the event netted the nonprofit roughly $550, said Kathleen Johnson, executive director of VYFS.
“We’re thrilled,” Johnson said. “We were really happy that people came out and supported us.”
Next month, VYFS will host another concert, when the popular island duo of Sarah Perlman and Daryl Redeker, or RedPerl, take to the stage Sept. 29 at the Vashon Theatre.
