POULSBO — One day a week, a group of women belonging to the Poulsbo Yacht Club Skylarks sit down to play Mahjongg.

Mahjongg groups and tournaments have become hugely popular. Most, if not all, are for the benefit of local nonprofit projects.

The Skylarks’ decided to donate this year’s tournament proceeds to Poulsbo’s newest outreach program, Coffee Oasis.

Coffee Oasis offers counseling, mentorship, skills classes and other programs for homeless and street-oriented youth.

On May 2, Skylarks president Patti Cuthill presented a $1,570 check to David Frederick, the director and founder of Coffee Oasis; and Donna Pledger, case manager for the Poulsbo project.

“Don’t forget, the restaurant is open to the public,” Cuthill said. “We encourage you to visit for coffee or lunch.”
