Gleason Gras! West festival comes later this month

— The first annual Gleason Gras! West festival, a benefit for Team Gleason, is a grassroots indie music festival with world class local, regional, and nationally known talent including, Left Hand Smoke, Hey Marseilles, Emily Wells and all the way from Australia, guitarist Blake Noble. The event also features a silent auction, raffle, and special guest appearances.

Team Gleason was founded by Steve Gleason who grew up in Spokane. Steve was a football standout at Gonzaga Prep High School, Washington State University, and with The New Orleans Saints from 2000-2008. As a counter-culture athlete who spent his off-season adventuring in third world countries, he will always be remembered for his blocked punt on the night the Louisiana Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina. Steve's passion for life and strong work ethic act as a model for us all.

In 2011, Steve was diagnosed with ALS, considered a terminal neuro-muscular disease. Beyond his faith that there is a solution to heal, it is his mission to show that patients can not only live but thrive after this diagnosis. In doing so, he hopes to inspire others to do the same.

Festival to be held Friday August 31 at Saranac Public House/Red Lion BBQ and Pub and on Saturday September 1 at The Bing Crosby Theater. Cost is $20 weekend passes. $12 single day tickets and available at TicketsWest.com, by phone at 325-SEAT, Spokane Arena Box Office open M-F, 10 to 6 pm. Tickets also are available at The Saranac Public House, The Elk Public House, Hoffman Music, 4,000 Holes, and The 27 Public House.

All proceeds go to support The Gleason Initiative Foundation. For more information, visit www.gleasongras.org or check the Gleason Gras! Face book page for new information and full lineup and event schedule.
