NWSS 2017 - Lilli Trippe Memorial Shave
In 2011, a beautiful tradition began at the Northwest String Summit. It all started with Lilli Trippe, a little girl who loved music, dancing, and Yonder Mountain String Band. For most of her short life, Lilli fiercely battled childhood cancer. In July of 2011, just a few days before her 4th birthday, Lilli passed away. Since then, every year on String Summit Sunday we honor our little friend Lilli by hosting a head shave while the rest of the crowd gets “Frilli for Lilli” by dressing up in their best Sunday Pink. This year, The Lilli Trippe Memorial Shave is proud to support Chelsea’s Closet - a local charity that brings dress up and play into Pacific NW hospitals so the children can fight their diseases while Dancing like Princesses and Flying like Superheroes.
Please join us this year as Sandy “Mama K” Kaufmann shaves her head to support Chelsea’s Closet and to bring awareness to this awful disease. Please help Sandy reach her goal by donating directly, by coming out to the NWSS, and by dancing your tutu off. We promise, Lilli is right there, dancing with you.
