Lillian Trippe Memorial Shave, Northwest String Summit - 2018
"In 2011, a beautiful tradition began at Northwest String Summit It all started with Lilli Trippe, a little girl who loved music, dancing, and Yonder Mountain String Band. For most of her short life, Lilli fiercely battled childhood cancer. In July of 2011, just a few days before her 4th birthday, Lilli passed away. Every year on String Summit Sunday, we honor our little friend Lilli." 💗
This is the second year Twice Upon a String donated the Sunday auction at Northwest String Summit. This pendant pendant was played by YMSB (Adam, Dave, Allie, & Jacob) with Peach Moonstone and a Mother of Pearl Moon. Proceeds support Chelsea’s Closet, a local nonprofit that inspires hope and healing through dress up and therapeutic play, giving seriously ill children the opportunity to dance like princesses and fly like superheroes.

Lillian Trippe Memorial Shave, Northwest String Summit - 2017
I am thrilled to donate this upcycled Yonder Mountain String Band pendant to be auctioned at Northwest String Summit in support of the Lillian Trippe Memorial Shave and in honor of Lilli's love of YMSB. 🌸 Lilli battled childhood cancer and passed away before her 4th birthday. She is honored at String Summit Sunday every year by hosting a head shave while the rest of the crowd gets “Frilli for Lilli” by dressing up in their best Sunday Pink. Fundraising efforts support children battling childhood cancer. *** For more information on this great cause, please check out: https://lillitrippe.org/
