This Year's Summer Concert Series in Browne's Addition is Kicking Off

This Year's Summer Concert Series in Browne's Addition is Kicking OffFor many years the summer concert series in Spokane's Browne's Addition neighborhood has been an anticipated way to enjoy the area for no cost to community members in the summer. 

Innovia Is This Year's Sponsor

The Innovia Foundation has been investing in opportunities for communities to gather together through supporting community concert events that allow the event to be at low or no cost so that more people can enjoy good music and get out to enjoy the community. 

Part of the focus behind investing in music events that bring people together is in celebration of the Innovia Foundation's 50th Anniversary. The theme of the celebration is "Celebrating Community." Innovia is proud to sponsor the 27th Annual Browne's Addition Summer Concert Series in Couer d" Alene Park. 

The CEO of Innovia Foundation shared this about their excitement about involvement in the concert series with a local news outlet:

"For over 100 years, Spokane’s Coeur d’Alene Park has provided a space for neighbors to gather and children to play,” says Shelly O’Quinn, CEO of Innovia Foundation. "Innovia is honored to invest in the continued vitality of this iconic park through the Browne’s Addition Summer Concerts, drawing visitors near and far to celebrate music and community together.”
