The annual Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Festival is organized by volunteers from the Rotary Club of Des Moines and Normandy Park.  A service group, first started in the area, in 1958.  From then to now, Rotarians from Des Moines/Normandy Park, WA have assembled to exchange ideas and take action in the face of our community's most pressing concerns.   From providing the Des Moines Area Food Bank for six decades to putting instruments in the hands of kids who want to play in band, but can't afford it, the Rotary is People of Action.  Below, you will find a partial list of the many wonderful causes supported by your ticket purchase. 

 

 100% of the net proceeds raised from the 2022 Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Fest, go to the causes powered by Rotary of Des Moines/Normandy Park, WA.  We could use more help.  If you are a community leader looking to exchange ideas and take action, consider this your invitation to attend an upcoming meeting to learn more about how you can help.  Click here to RSVP for an upcoming meeting.
