The Most Important Meal & The Most Important Cause
Ken Glass tipped us off to the annuals schools breakfast. In his words:
It’s a great, fun community event designed to raise money (especially important this year as the schools face budget cuts from Olympia and aren’t allowed to ask taxpayers if they wish to pay more for schools).
First and foremost are finding sponsors, angels (donors whose donations get matched) and table captains.
Put it on the calendar and sponsor if you can. And if you eat too many pancakes for the kids, also coming up in March:
Mercer Island Half Marathon
There’s also a 10k and 5k run. I ran this last year and it was a lot of fun.
