The free, family-friendly concert is from 7-8:30 p.m. on the lawn in front of the Issaquah Community Center. Crowds typically begin gathering as early as 6 p.m. to lay claim for choice seating for community picnicking.

Hairstorm recreates the experience of the mid-1980s hair rock scene with powerful and highly melodic performances, including outfits and stage show. Hairstorm celebrates a time in rock where men looked like women and the women looked like even hotter women. Join Hairstorm for the sights and sounds of Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, AC/DC, Twisted Sister, Whitesnake, Gun N’ Roses and more. Read more

Fund research now
Alzheimer’s disease is becoming more and more familiar, and will continue to do so until there will be virtually no one left untouched by a personal story around Alzheimer’s.
Currently there are 100,000 Washingtonians living with Alzheimer’s disease, and that number will grow to 140,000 by 2025. My mother is one of them. She is 81, and was a vibrantly active woman until this disease started to slowly shrink her world, and her ability to manage it independently.
My good friend Nancy is a 54-year-old mother of three boys, diagnosed at 53 years old. She may not be able to recognize her first grandchild, when he or she comes. My office manager is struggling to balance a full-time job, and be the primary caregiver for her own mother with dementia, after losing her father a year ago.
Surprisingly, for every $100 spent on Alzheimer’s research, Medicare and Medicaid spend $26,000 to care for people with the disease today. We must invest more to find a treatment and a cure now, rather than wait to spend the $1.1 trillion that is estimated to be needed by 2050 if we don’t. Read more
