Sammamish High School is holding a one-of-its-kind fundraiser on Jan. 21 to benefit the school’s Booster Club and enrich the community.

Classical and jazz musician Enrique Henao will perform with singer-songwriter Lauren Janssen. Henao is known for his soulful interpretations of flamenco and free-spirited acoustical guitar.

All ticket proceeds will benefit Sammamish Totems and Enrichment Program Support (STEPS).

“Mr. Henao donates his time and talents to enrich students lives with his music and support their education. It was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up,” Sammamish PTSA Co-President Beth Steinberg said. “We want this to be a concert that not only raises money for the STEPS program at Sammamish, but also a community building event for Sammamish High School and the Bellevue community.”

Generally, the booster club holds an auction every other year to support their grants to teachers and students. In the past, the club has supported field trips, band uniforms and equipment for our music groups, after school tutoring, AVID college field trips, equipment for classrooms, the robotics team and more.

The performance will be held at Sammamish High School at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at
