Island Thirst changes world

Oh what a night! The good times were non-stop at IDIPIC’s Comedy, Canapés, Magic & More! held June 30 at The Whidbey Playhouse. Thanks to a match by Island Thrift, the event raised nearly $10,000 for our DUI/Underage Drinking prevention work.

Magic man ‘JR’ Russell got the fun ball rolling, then the Whidbey Improv Team kept it going. Thanks to our sponsors and silent auction donators noted at www.idipic.org, helpers and audience: you all made it happen for safer kids, safer roads.

For making our fundraiser doubly successful, and for all the support Island Thrift gives our community, please consider donating and shopping at Island Thrift. To put a spin on an old African proverb: “It takes a village to change our part of the world for the better.” And Island Thrift does that over and over again by its support of so much community service.
