Mike Turner Memorial Foundation A Non-Profit Organization

Mike Turner The Mike Turner Memorial Foundation was established in 2008 by lifelong friends, Toby Strotz and Quinton Tanner. They started the foundation with the purpose of raising money to benefit local charities and organizations in memory of Mike Turner. Mike was an incredibly generous, giving, and compasionate man. He had a flair for life, a love of the outdoors, and a passion for music. He passed away near his home on Pilchuck Creek doing something he loved - fishing. He could always be found either fishing nearby or jamming with his buddies at a local pub.

If Mike were here today, he would be passionately involved in helping raise money for local charities benefiting youth sports, Children's Hospital, cancer research or other causes that would help those in need or crisis. Creating the foundation in hopes of helping local charities in his name is the ultimate way of paying respect and honoring Mike's memory.

Mike Turner As a means to raise this money in Mike's name, in 2008 Toby and Quinton organized a weekend long music festival called "StrutzFest", named after Toby's band "Strutz". The festival brought together local musical talent, many of whom Toby has known for years and some new talent as well. The first year, 2008, highlighted musical talent such as Rail, Whiskey Creek, El Loco, Magic Bus, Strutz, The Penguins, and more. Money raised was donated to Children's Hospital, Susan G. Komen For The Cure, and Arlington Youth Sports. The second annual StrutzFest, 2009, featured national/international talent such as all-girl AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles, Jimi Hendrix tribute band Randy Hansen, Heart tribute band Heartless, Neil Diamond tribute band Cherry Cherry, Strutz, Blue Tattoo, The Beatniks, Magic Bus and more. Proceeds benefitted Special Olympics and Children's Hospital. StrutzFest continued for three more years and we can proudly state that every year we were able to provide a level of entertainment and support for charities unsurpassed by others. This year we again take on the endeavor of presenting a classic rock festival that will fund and support local charities and make all those associated with our mission proud to be a part of it!
