For decades Bonnie Raitt, who has been active in the environmental movement since the mid-70s, has worked to leave a legacy of good in communities where she plays. She finds local grassroots non-profit organizations that work on issues of safe and sustainable energy, environmental protection, peace and social justice. She donates a portion of the concert proceeds to the selected organizations.
At nearly every concert, Bonnie sets aside a number of hand-selected seats to benefit local non-profits. And whenever possible Bonnie’s staff works to coordinate the presence of non-profit organizations at Bonnie's concerts so they can share information with concertgoers.
For her Rapid City concert on Saturday, Sept. 9, Bonnie has chosen to support Trinity Eco Prayer Park. She will also be providing space at the concert for the park to have a table to talk with concertgoers about the park’s use of solar power, its sustainable landscape design, low-impact stormwater management and Sustainability Outreach. She has also selected Black Hills Clean Water Alliance to have a display at the concert.
