Current events: Snow braved to help foundation

On behalf of the Island County Readiness to Learn Foundation board and staff we would like to thank everyone who helped to make our fund-raising event held at the Whidbey Playhouse Theatre on Nov. 30 a big success.

To those of you who braved the icy roads to spend the evening with us viewing the play “A Christmas Story” and bidding on auction items we much appreciate your generosity and support. It is heartwarming to live in a community with so many people who are willing to give to the families and children assisted through our organization.

We would also like to thank the following businesses for their contributions of food, drink and auction items:

Imperial Restaurant, Frasers Gourmet Hideaway, Applebees Restaurant, Nibbles, Creative Heart, Donna Stringer (The Body Shop), Whidbey Printers, Copy This, Mail That; Artisianos Salon (Jackie Bregar and Jen Nolan), Forever Pretty, Aqua Gifts, Mad Crab, Tastefully Simple (Kristi Etzell), Prairie Center, Costco, as well as all the volunteers.

If you would like more information on our programs or wish to donate to our organization, please call 279-5072 or write us at: Readiness to Learn c/o CHE, 330 E. Crescent Harbor Rd., Oak Harbor, WA 98277.
