Sedro-Woolley Winter Fundraiser Recap

The Sedro-Woolley Boys & Girls Club held their inaugural Winter Fundraiser on Saturday, January 26th at the Sedro-Woolley Community Center. 200 generous Boys & Girls Club Supporters enjoyed a great event and raised over $15,000 to support targeted programs at the Sedro-Woolley Club and Teen Center!

After a gourmet pasta dinner prepared by the Cascade Job Corps Culinary Arts Program, guests then took to the silent auction tables, where coveted items were bid upon and fought for! Guests bought raffle ticket after raffle ticket in hopes of winning prizes like a Joe Jones Entertainment Pub Crawl, a Ladie’s Day Out, and Kenny Chesney Concert tickets!

Club Supporters had the opportunity to hear from Junior Youth of the Year Adriana Timblin, who shared the ways the Club has helped her learn and grow, saying, “The Boys & Girls Club has helped me to make new friends and to get along better with my sister… and I like that I can volunteer in the community with my friends from the Club.” Doug Wood, Sedro-Woolley Chief of Police, gave testimonial about the Club, stating, “With 100% certainty, I can say the Boys & Girls Club has had a profound and positive effect on the Sedro-Woolley community.” With that, guests then raised their paddles in support of the vital targeted programs and opportunities at the Sedro-Woolley Boys & Girls Club, raising $3300 in pledges and donations to directly support the Club.
