Fundraising Pig Roast a Success

Editor, the VOICE:

A big thanks to the community of Black Diamond for their support of the fundraising event held on June 21st.

The Hawaiian-themed event, complete with roasted pig, leis and “Island” cocktails, raised money to support families needing essential services, including food through the summer.  Funds will also be used to continue our agency’s support of seniors in our community.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Mutual of Enumclaw, TRM Wood Products, Mary Kay, and Black Diamond Recycling.  With their financial support, all funds raised go to our clients.

Thank you to those who donated for our raffle: The Smokehouse & More, ACE Hardware, Carpinito Brothers, Colt and Marsha Tetzlaff, Costco, Elsie Parkin, Jay and Jude Irish, Brenda Evenson, Judy Watson, Patricia Moss, and The Loft Salon & Spa.

A special thanks to Justin, from Mike Lind’s Meats, for dressing and serving the pig.

Volunteers worked so hard to make the evening run smooth.  Sandi and Bill Hooper, and Mutual of Enumclaw employees, our cook Jude Irish, Kim Borgen, Devonne Hicks, Rachael Heater and Debbie Snider kept things lively.  Regular center volunteers continue to help at events: Ron Brentson, Mary Ann Knarreborg, Barbara Besagno and Melissa Oglesbee.  Staff Leslie Johnson, Helen Bittner, Irene Vaughn, with wonderful help from Setheni Kirschnick worked the crowd selling raffle tickets.

Our next fundraising event is our Dinner Auction on October 12th.  Call 360-886-1011 for details and tickets.

Thank you all so much!
