St. Pat success

Soroptimist of Friday Harbor held their 18th annual St. Patrick’s Day Extravaganza fundraiser March 12. It was a successful and fun party held at the SJI Yacht Club: superb food catered by Coho Restaurant, toe-tapping music by the Organic Irish Band (Kirk Fuhrmeister, Mike Cohen, and Valerie White), scrumptious Dessert Auction, and, of course, the live auction of amazing items with the inimitable auctioneer, Farhad Ghatan.

None of this success could have happened without the diligent and devoted work of the Extravaganza Fund Raising Committee (Necia Quast, Ann Van Buskirk, Marcy Hahn, Carol Capps, Mary Campanella and Peggy Long), Soroptimist volunteers, and as always, the incredible generosity of our local businesses, and all the islanders who support our goal of what is best for island women and children.Heartfelt thanks to you all.

Gay Graham,

Extravaganza Chairman
