Sink the Dinghy Charity for 2014

PC John Gargett announced at this year’s Tom and Jerry Party that our 2014 Sink the Dinghy Charity is Rebound of Whatcom County, where we will be ‘adopting’ a young single mom, named Adrienne, and her four children – all victims of domestic violence.

Please be as generous as you’re able when the hat gets passed around at upcoming Club events these next couple of months. The wrap-up will be at the ‘Souper’ Bowl Party in February.
Rebound, is 501(c)3 organization, so your checks can be tax deductible. To read more about Adrienne’s story, click here
