Fiesta event shows community cares | Letters

Editor,

Medical Safety Net of North Whidbey thanks everyone who attended or bought tickets to our Oct. 21 Fiesta.

We were grateful for a beautiful evening with Marty Malloy playing Spanish-style guitar while Scott Fraser and his team at Fraser’s Gourmet served up a delicious Spanish-themed four-course meal for our guests.

We are appreciative Oak Harbor businesses and organizations that are supportive of our mission to temporarily help those less fortunate at this time in their lives with prescription medications and emergency dental care.

We are especially thankful for our sponsors Best Friends Veterinary, Island Drug and Gene Kelly Barner at Edward Jones at the Plata level and Whidbey Vision Care, Saar’s Market Place Food & Drug, and SeaTac Shuttle Whidbey.

It is heartwarming to be a part of a community who takes care of each other. We received donations in kind from Island Trollers, Dill Design and Gary Berner DDS and others.

Also, each of our board members made a contribution in creating a gorgeous gift basket of “all our favorite things” awarded to a lucky raffle winner.

As a member of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce we also were able to get the word out to many others who may partner with us in the future.

The entire board of directors thanks all that made this annual event happen and hope you continue to help us help others during these difficult economic times. We look forward to next year’s Fiesta.

Cynthia Mason, president

Medical Safety Net of North Whidbey
