Show Sponsors

The Friends of the Florence Events Center, festival underwriter, thank all of our sponsors for Winter Music Festival 2019.


A special thanks goes out to this year's Presenting Sponsor, Sea Lion Caves.  Their generous support makes it possible to present the finest lineup in the history of the festival.  Be sure to either pay a visit, or just say thanks, to all of our vital sponsors.

Sea Lion Caves is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary (since 1932) centrally located just 11 miles north of Florence on the beautiful and rugged Oregon Coast. Sea Lion Caves is proud to be part of the Oregon/Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve helping to protect the local marine animals and marine environment. Sea Lion Caves is America's largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion, but sea lions are not always in the Cave. They are wild animals and we are not a zoo so these protected animals come and go as they please, as is their nature. Winter months will usually find hundreds of sea lions in the Cave and when spring arrives, breeding and birthing time, the sea lions will move from the Cave to the rookery areas (the rock ledges out in front of the Cave) and will remain there through the summer.


Art and Jean Koning (sponsors of the Saturday Night Headliners)

The Winter Music Festival extends sincerest thanks for the Konings for sponsoring the heart of the festival, the Saturday Night Headliners. 

As a couple, Art and Jean are a local powerhouse.  In addition to a history of civic involvement, they run Terrace Homes and Koning and Cooper Construction Inc.  Their winning combination includes treating each customer with respect, being considered good citizens by their customers, and they are the recipients of numerous customer service, customer satisfaction, and sales awards.  As Art and Jean like to say, at Terrace Homes, “One stop will do it all” for your next home building project. 

Trillium Community Health Plan (sponsor of Friday Night Bluegrass)

The Winter Music Festival is pleased to announce Trillium Community Health Plans the sponsor of Friday Night Bluegrass!


At Trillium, we believe that listening to our members is the key to success. That's why in 2015 we decided to re-write our Mission and Vision- this time with help from our members, providers, community leaders and Trillium employees. Small focus groups and individual interviews helped us learn what was important to people in helping them improve their health and their lives. The common themes from those sessions became the foundation of these guiding statements. 

Our Mission is to listen to, respect and empower our members, in partnership with the provider community, to achieve better health by addressing their unique needs and seeking innovative solutions.

Our Vision is to create a strong, community-based health care system that focuses on prevention and delivering high quality service to our members through coordination, collaboration, and partnerships.


Trillium Community Health Plan is a Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) and recognized leader for innovative approaches and outstanding coordination of community-based healthcare. Helping create a healthier community is the core of Trillium’s mission. We partner with an extensive group of physical, behavioral and oral healthcare providers on behalf of Oregon Health Plan members in Lane and Western Douglas County.

Trillium is committed to its members and community. Since 2012, Trillium has invested more than $13 million in Lane County to open four new clinics to ensure all members have access to primary care, to expand prevention services targeted at reducing tobacco use and obesity, and to further integrate and enhance community behavioral health services – including addressing the holistic needs of our most vulnerable such as housing, education, and access to healthy food.

We are proud of the work we do at Trillium and value the trust of our community to coordinate the highest quality of care for our members.


It all started in 1977 when local Lane County doctors came together to form the Lane Individual Physicians Association (LIPA). In 1996, as commercial insurers were backing out in Lane County, LIPA funded the creation of a plan to locally manage the Oregon Health Plan and was awarded by the state in 1999. In 2012, Trillium Community Health Plan was one of the first Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) approved by the state to transform care for Oregon Health Plan members.

From early in its development, Trillium collaborated with Lane County and formed a unique public-private partnership. The partnership has become a model for integration of behavioral health and primary care integration as well as expanding the reach of prevention efforts.

As a key focus area, Trillium sets aside $1.33 per Oregon Health Plan member per month to fund programs that prevent chronic disease and help Trillium members live healthier lives. Instead of just treating our members when they get sick, we work to keep them healthy and thriving. Trillium has invested more than $13 million in the community to expand access to care, enhance prevention programs targeting tobacco, obesity and behavioral health and fund grants that improve delivery of care through innovation.

Now serving more than 90,000 members in Lane and Douglas counties, Trillium has been recognized for consistently meeting or exceeding state performance and quality standards and is the only CCO awarded with a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation.

We are proud of our 20+ years working on behalf of Oregon Health Plan members. Whether the need is for medical care, food, housing or transportation Trillium strives to meet the needs of each individual. We are more than a community-based organization serving members- we're part of the community.

Oregon Pacific Bank 

The folks at Oregon Pacific Bank truly live the community involvement creed outlined below.  You need look no further than OPB to find the type of civic minded commitment that helps make Florence the gem that it is.  Several excerpts from the bank’s website appear below.

Established on December 17, 1979 and headquartered in Florence, Oregon, we have grown to include full service branches in Coos Bay, Roseburg, and Eugene, as well as a Trust office in Medford. Staffed by local decision makers, we specialize in offering holistic financial services to our local families and business owners.

We are proud to contribute to the social and economic success of the communities we serve. We have over 100 local employees working out of our various locations, many who have been part of our team for over a decade. We promote a culture of caring, encouraging our staff to be involved in worthwhile community endeavors. Taking this to heart, almost all of our employees are currently involved in the community in some way. In addition to general volunteer time, many of our employees serve in leadership positions on numerous influential community organizations. Aside from volunteer hours, Oregon Pacific Bank supports numerous community organizations through sponsorships and donations.

Ninkasi Brewing – Beer is Love

The Florence Winter Music Festival is delighted that Ninkasi has signed on again for 2019.   Through their Beer is Love program, Ninkasi believes that theycan help others do good through using beer as the liquid to bring people together. The program offers beer donations to registered 501(c)3 non-profit organizations throughout every community where Ninkasi beer is sold and enjoyed. Beer is Love supports non-profits doing work in five core categories: animals, arts and music, equality, outdoors, and women.

In 2007, Ninkasi moved to its current location in Eugene’s Whiteaker neighborhood. Known for its eclectic art, the two knew this neighborhood would easily foster community. Fast forward to 2011, and the hard work of both founders landed them the fastest growing craft brewery in the United States with a top selling IPA in Oregon. Fast forward to present day, and Ninkasi ranks the 38th largest craft brewer in the United States (Brewers Association, 2017).

The brewery continues to grow while remaining fully independent and continuously focused on community. A team of two has increased to a family of over 100 employees who operate Ninkasi’s tasting room, production and lab facilities, online casinos, sales force, marketing teams, local distribution arm, and a donations program. 

Ninkasi beer may be purchased all weekend at Pavilion Catering, our on-site caterer, located just outside of the Florence Events Center Theater in the lobby.

Community involvement.  On December 8th the Florence Dental Clinic was honored by the Oregon Bankers Association.  Dee Osborne, from Banner Bank, nominated our business for the Community Applause Award and we were chosen for the small business award.  It is a great honor to have won for our efforts to better the community that we live in.  The Florence Dental Clinic will continue to do what we can day by day to help our community and our children.

International C-Food Market Restaurant

Welcome to International C-Food Market Restaurant, also referred to as ICM's unique seafood restaurant. Owner Ramiro Ramirez, with the help of many local contractors, has built the newest and most exciting seafood restaurant on the Oregon coast - right here in Old Town Florence, overlooking the Siuslaw River. The restaurant was built from the water up in only eight months, and opened on July 20, 1993. Every detail was carefully thought out. A relatively unknown local artist, Mark Storaasli, who we were fortunate to discover, created the unique murals on the outside and inside of the restaurant. His work certainly demonstrates his unusual style and quality as a true artist. The Neptune wood sculpture was created by local artist Dylan James from a piece of big leaf maple was dedicated to the Port of Siuslaw in recognition of the importance of the present and past fisherman.
