One World United Through Music

Positive Legacy creates meaningful opportunities to participate in humanitarian and environmental outreach projects that support the local community.

Positive Legacy would like to thank all the fans, artists, and musicians who supported our environmental and humanitarian outreach projects at Dominican Holidaze 2017! We are thrilled to announce that the charity auction, Musical Bingo with GRiZ, Mystery Mixologists tips, and Setlist Pool raised over $13,000!

These funds will continue to support an ongoing clean drinking water and sewage project in Veron, Dominican Republic. Thank you for helping us make a cultural and ecological connection as we begin phase two of our long term waste management and clean water project and the community develops a potable drinking water system.

For our 2018 Day of Service, we traveled 20 minutes to Central Vallarta where we completed a mural on the new schoolhouse which we helped build in years past, painted the new medical clinic we funded, finished the newly built garden bed wall, painted playground equipment, and then made and played with pinatas! After finishing our work, we headed over to the community cenote where a delicious, locally-catered lunch awaited us. Our group enjoyed cliff-diving, zip-lining and swimming in the cool, natural pool waters.
The Holidaze 2018 auction had a fantastic mid-day turnout and raised $14,420! Many musicians donated amazing items such as VIP festival tickets, signed memorabilia, and uniquely designed playbills. Their fans also provided Positive Legacy with original auction entries such as jewelry, carved wood event art, and even a six-night lodge stay outside of Rocky Mountain State Park. Once again, photographers Dave Vann and Josh Timmermans donated their talent and time with some amazing, autographed shots of our Holidaze musicians. Thank you to everyone who donated and bid on items for the auctions!
Help us provide necessary materials for schooling and essential medical supplies - together we can make a difference! The donations collected during Holidaze will be disbursed to the local Central Vallarta medical clinics and schools. Donation items should be brought to the Positive Legacy Headquarters in the Lobby Bar table on Event Day 1 or 2. Items will be brought into the community on Day 3. We kindly ask that you leave the plastic bags at home.
