For the Kids

A Grammy-winning composer, a great cause, and you

Full_imogen

Seattle's such a charitable town that there are tons of fun benefits worth attending to support all kinds of good causes.

But this event's bigger, this is the charity event of the season.

First and foremost, it's got history: Grammy-winning composer Mateo Messina has been writing a new symphony every year for the past 16 to benefit Children's Hospital.

Secondly, there's some all-star talent on board: English singer Imogen Heap and YouTube sensations Pomplamoose will be accompanying the Seattle Symphony in the performance.

And lastly, we can get you in... as a VIP.

Rundown Reward: Email mateo@rundown com by Friday and we'll put you in the running for a pair of all-access tickets to the concert.

That means incredible seats on the main floor, invitations to a pre-show cocktail hour, and a special intermission as well as backstage access to meet the performers.

We've got two tickets, so bring a girl you want to impress, or a wingman — this event attracts plenty of single ladies.

Because it's way less depressing than Sarah McLachlan's plea with those sad one-eyed puppies.
