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:
*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 page – mostly 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!
