The Hall at Fauntleroy was filled with tasty treats and drinks from some 40 restaurants, breweries, bakeries, wineries, coffee shops, chocolatiers, and specialty food stores as they gathered to deliver the goods to some 500 patrons supporting The West Seattle Helpline at this annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the event help West Seattle residents with rent, utilities, clothing, bus tickets and more. All images can be viewed here.
“Providing Hope, Inspiring Action”…It was a day of giving for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Northwest Chapter as supporters gathered for the annual event that raises funds and awareness in support of research, patient progress and treatment progress for this most debilitating disease. Having a sister that suffers yet lives fully with the illness, it is always heart-wrenching and heart-warming to hear stories of those who have conquered the disease in their own way. Erin Stedman shared her story which was totally different than that of her sister who also has the disease. Erin somehow managed her pain and suffering while planning a wedding and later having a baby. Surrounded by family and love definitely pulled her through. And then there was Trina who received the McCready Family Award whose story was just as inspiring.
“Joy is in the Journey” and it definitely showed as 150 people gathered to support the Senior Center of West Seattle at their annual spring fundraiser. Judging from the happy faces The Center is truly a place of joy, friendship and support for our community. The highlight of the breakfast was an introduction to Holly McNeill’s local outreach program. In 2015 over 4,000 seniors were served in one way or another; home visits, warm lunches, bingo, Rainbow Bingo, Trivia Night, Enhance Fitness classes, Dance Time, Meals on Wheels, and the Stop-n-Shop.
