Looking forward to those gazebo pool sets, BINGO, and seeing all of our Strings and Sol family!
Big thanks to all the wonderful patrons and musicians of Strings & Sol for the fantastic showing after a long year off! There was no dust on any of them as Strings & Sol went fantastically well, raising significant funds for our environmental and humanitarian projects. Because we stayed onsite for this year’s Day of Service, it afforded us the opportunity to have two sessions of our special day. We partnered with Mike’s Amazing and Fundación RCD, and with the help of 50 guests working a well-oiled assembly line, we put together 400 bags of food items for local families in need. While stuffing bags, guests were treated to food, drinks, and live music from members of Greensky Bluegrass, Lil Smokies, Tim Carbone, and Lindsay Lou – which helped quicken the pace! The auction for Strings & Sol was a great success and folks came ready to bid! Regardless of who won, Your Rocktioneer® Seth Weiner made the auction fun for everyone, providing a great experience for giving to such a good cause and raising over $16,000! Poolside shenanigans were also in full effect and we loved being a part of guest celebrity Bingo with Matt Rieger (aka Rev from Lil Smokies), Squid Games, and a fan-led Fun Run – special thanks to Emily Love for setting this up and donating the proceeds to Positive Legacy! The opportunities were in abundance for us to raise money for the local community. Thank you Strings & Sol family... we couldn't do this without you!
STRINGS & SOL RECAP (2012 - 2021)
Positive Legacy has been involved with Strings & Sol since its inaugural event in 2012. Over the course of nine years, Positive Legacy, with the support of festival attendees, has raised more than $117,000 for beneficiaries in Mexico!
Funds raised at S&S have supported:
Purchasing food and supplies for families especially hard hit by the pandemic in Quintana Roo
Reforesting and landscaping at the Colegio De Bachilleres to create a green space for agricultural programming, outdoor learning and recreation
Building a medical center and schoolhouse in Central Vallarta
Developing the Flora y Fauna community garden site
The Botanical Gardens of El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (ECOSUR), and an urban agriculture and ecological curriculum for the local high school
Programming at Casa de la Cultura’s community center in Puerto Morelos
The Phoenix School building and expansion project in Tulum
Positive Legacy hosted the first-ever Post-Strings & Sol Eco and Cultural Immersion Experience in December of 2019. Positive Legacy partnered with Pure Paradise Travel and Dreams for Mayan Children for an adventure into the jungle. This cultural submersion trip provided insight into the lives of community members of the Mayan village Nuevo Durango, who showed us their traditions such as hammock making, organic gardening and caring for the apiary.
Thanks to everyone who has supported our organization and projects by participating in some of our favorite on-site activities including Bingo, Celebrity Bartending, the Charity Auction, Donation Drive, Mexican Carnival, and Poolside Derby!
We want to give an extra special thank you to Railroad Earth for their continued support over the years. Railroad Earth’s multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling participated in every Day of Service from 2012 through 2017. His spirit is still missed as we remember his enthusiasm for our causes, and for walking in this world with integrity and a heart full of love.
