Benefit raises money for Tent City 4

April 27, 2010

By Staff

Tent City 4 garnered more than $1,400 through a fundraiser organized to educate Issaquah and Eastside residents about homelessness.

“View from the Tent” — a dramatic monologue based on letters from a homeless man — anchored a benefit for the homeless encampment. Tent City 4 residents answered questions from the audience after the April 17 performance. Ticket and book sales benefited the encampment.

Author M. Barrett Miller compiled letters from a homeless man into a self-published book, “View from the Tent: Thoughts from a Homeless Man.” Dan Niven, a Seattle actor and musician, adapted the book into a monologue.

Tent City 4 departed Issaquah for Kirkland on April 24 after a 90-day stay at Community Church of Issaquah.
