Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund thanks supporters

On Oct. 6, the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund held its 11th Annual Auction in Port Gamble.

It was a beautiful, sunny Sunday and more than 250 community members joined the board of directors and volunteers to recognize this very special event.

Since its inception in 2003, the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund has filled a critical need on the Olympic Peninsula by providing transportation assistance to more than 600 women seeking treatment for female cancers of all kinds.

The organization is named for its founder, Kathleen Sutton, a member of the Kingston community who, herself, died from cancer.

This year more than $47,000 was raised and that will make it possible for the KSIF to continue helping the increasing numbers of women who need our services throughout the Kitsap Peninsula.

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 monetary contribution, auction items and time.

You have graciously given the KSIF these things and so much more.

You have shown kindness, compassion and the importance of coming together to make a difference in the lives of others.

We attribute our success to you.

The Board of Directors, of the Kathleen Sutton Inspirational Fund, including:

Vivi-Ann Parnell,

Kathy Rayment,

Valerie Rotmark,

Linda Joyce,

Rita Osborn

and Karla Woodside.
