West Seattle-wide WS4OSO benefit updates: Sunday’s the big day; events tonight, Saturday too

This pup’s helping in the aftermath of the Snohomish County slide …

…can you?

You don’t even have to head 65 miles north to Oso to do so. The WS4OSO - West Seattle for Oso – benefit just keeps growing. Proposed by West Seattle community-builder/fundraiser Tracy Dart on Wednesday night and formally launched shortly thereafter to give West Seattle businesses and residents a way to reach northward with a helping hand, it now includes events tonight and tomorrow as well as various opportunities on the main day, Sunday. Highlights:

*Tonight, West Seattle Bowl is donating part of the proceeds from its bowling/cider event (details here)

*Saturday night, the West Seattle Eagles will host a fundraising dinner, open to the public, 5:30-7 pm: “Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes, corn, and dessert for $9.”

*Sunday, at least 27 West Seattle businesses are signed up for various types of participation – you’ll want to check with any individual participating business you visit, to be sure, but the list so far is in a couple spots on the Facebook pagemostly here, with additions here and here.

*Cash donations will be collected in the Farmers’ Market vicinity on Sunday.

If you’re interested in participating, contact info is in the original announcement published here Thursday.

ADDED 2:58 PM: By request, especially for those who don’t use FB, here’s what we’re seeing on the official page so far, in terms of participants. Again, this is VERY grass-roots, and participating businesses/organizations are doing what they can and choose to do, so if info is not listed in terms of what percentage of proceeds (etc.), please inquire when you stop in tomorrow – thanks!

  2. For those of us who are Luddites not using Facebook, is there another source to find an updated list of participants?

  3. Hi! You’re not a Luddite … the open web is far better … but some prefer FB so we have to play in that pond too. I’m going to make something of a list here in a little bit – we had to go out right after I published this update – and I’m running down the hill to check out something else unrelated right now … but check back around 3 if you can … TR

  4. Is info available about who is donating full proceeds, rather than a small percentage? Thanks.

    and SW, while I appreciate the intention of fundraising efforts, I prefer to stick with proven, professionals who are experienced in money management and have tried and true accountability written into their systems.

    God Bless Tracy Dart and all of the efforts to help that community. And God Speed to Oso in the days ahead.

  8. Thank you West Seattle for your giving hearts. This started after watching the news and feeling incredibly helpless. Come to find out…many others were feeling the exact same way. Looking forward to seeing you all out and about this weekend. Thank you TR for helping get the word out! – Tracy
