The third annual Tillamook Head Gathering will take place on Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Seaside Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 7 p.m. Soul singer Kelsey Mousley, who graduated from Seaside High School about 10 years ago, will provide music with her Portland band. Local artists donate items for a silent auction; light fare by The Stand. All proceeds support enrichment in the arts for Seaside High School students.
Last year’s gathering helped fund an arts day at the high school, in which local artists gave workshops for the entire student body. The event also helped support a choir trip to Los Angeles, bring in professional musicians to perform in various classes and provide a stipend for a professional dance instructor to share his expertise through a dance club. A yearbook staff photography workshop was also assisted by the event.
Tickets for the Tillamook Head Gathering are $10 at Seaside Coffee House, Beach Books, or the Seaside High School business office, or for $15 at the convention center the day of the event.
