Letters to the Editor

Thank you for support for Sutton Fund

On Oct. 6, the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund held its 10th annual auction in Port Gamble. It was a beautiful day, made that much more special by the more than 300 community members that joined the board of directors and volunteers to recognize our efforts and celebrate this momentous milestone.

Since its inception in 2003, the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund has filled a critical need in Kitsap, Jefferson, Clallam and North Mason counties by providing transportation assistance to women seeking treatment for breast, ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers.

This year, the more than $43,000 raised will make it possible for the KSIF to continue reaching the increasing numbers of women who need our services.

There are truly not enough words to express our gratitude to the many supporters who give so generously year after year. We have asked for your monetary contributions, auction items and time. You have graciously given the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund these things — and much more. You have shown kindness, compassion and the importance of coming together to make a difference in the lives of many women and their families. We attribute our success to you.

Looking forward to seeing you at next year’s KSIF auction.

With heartfelt appreciation,
Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund
Board of Directors: Vivi-Ann Parnell, Kathy Rayment, Valerie Rotmark, Linda K. Joyce, Rita Osborn, Karla Woodside
