Gleason Fest canceled due to pandemic

SPOKANE, Wash. — Gleason Fest, the annual music festival and Team Gleason fundraiser, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a post on Instagram, organizers said the decision to cancel was made out of the utmost caution for attendees, bands, ALS patients and their families.

Gleason Fest is a large fundraiser that helps raise money to support Team Gleason in their mission to provide ALS patients with the technology, equipment, care services and support they need.

Team Gleason is now looking at other avenues to raise those much-needed funds.
