On August 18th 2019, the Pourhouse Craft Beer Taproom and Bottle shop hosted Olympic Neighbors’ 4th Annual Summer Bash Fundraiser. The bash featured a full day of live music, food, dancing and more. The event began at 2 pm and lasted until 8 pm. Local merchants, vendors and shop owners donated over 100 silent auction items to help raise money. The Pourhouse “bought” a beer for anyone who donated $25 to Olympic Neighbors. Local bands MerryMakers, Lowire, Port Townsend Village Drummers, and Unexpected Brass Band set the mood for this fun outdoor fundraiser by playing sets throughout the day.
Barbarian Fine Cuisine and PhoFilling served up mouthwatering burgers and Vietnamese food. The event also included a 50/50 cash raffle with a grand prize of $2,500. This year our winner graciously donated $500 back to Olympic Neighbors. 24 people battled to be the winner of the ping-pong tournament for both a women’s competition and a co-ed competition. Each winner received a small prize.
Through this event Olympic Neighbors was able to raise $23,489 to use towards the cost of providing safe, affordable housing and staff support to our residents in their adult family home program. That support allows adults with developmental disabilities to get the support they need to live, work and thrive in the community. Olympic Neighbors is so incredible grateful to our sponsors at the Pourhouse, Cascade Community Connections, Coldwell Bankers, Kristin Marwaring Insurance, Gale Investment Management, PhoFilling and Barbarian Fine Cuisine. We want to thank the Merry Makers, PT Village Drummers, Lowie and the Unexpected Brass Band; our volunteers; all the individuals who donated to auction; and to our community that shows us incredible support not just yesterday, but on a continual basis. We are humbled by the generosity of our community.
