Hilltop Artists is Seahawks Charity of the Month

Hilltop Artists has been named Bonneville Seattle and Seattle Seahawks’s Charity of the Month for March, for giving students ages 12 to 20 the chance to explore the glass medium through fusion, mosaics, flameworking, and glassblowing. All month long, listen for a PSA airing on all three of the Bonneville Seattle radio stations (97.3 KIRO FM, 710 ESPN Seattle, and 770 KTTH). In addition, Hilltop Artists will receive a monetary donation and special recognition at a preseason Seattle Seahawks game.

Glassblowing requires the students to learn how to plan and execute sequential steps, collaborate with others, and adapt when things don’t go as planned. Research has shown that students who have access to art have better academic and interpersonal success.

Hilltop Artists is successful because of many amazing volunteers, sponsors, and various fundraising events and activities. Tacoma Public Schools is one of this charity’s most important partners because they not only provide an in-kind donation of the two Tacoma facilities and their utilities, but also contribute towards the salaries of our daytime instructors – who teach elective classes at Jason Lee Middle School – and the Career and Technical Education classes at Wilson High School.
