West Seattle scenes: Friday night fun


That’s the crowd from one of at least two Breast Cancer 3Day fundraisers in West Seattle this weekend — left to right, the grownups in the photo are Kyle Minaglia, Jennifer Carlson, Amanda Armstrong, and Kristi Keithly. Kristi had e-mailed WSB to let us know about her fundraising barbecue at 62nd/Admiral tonight; she’s working to get to her fundraising goal. She’ll be in the 3Day (which reportedly will travel through West Seattle again this year; here’s our coverage from last year) in honor of a dear old friend, diagnosed with breast cancer and not even 40 yet. The story’s a lot like that of 33-year-old West Seattleite Tracy Dart, who is blogging here about her breast-cancer battle — and getting ready for the 3Day with a fundraiser outside West 5 this coming Sunday, 11 am-6 pm. Meantime, back in the Alki area, the Community Center‘s advisory council was barbecuing tonight too:


The council helps keep things humming at this community hub, and put on the event as a community thank-you (and an opportunity to get the word out about the ongoing need for volunteer help). Now we head south to The Mount, where tonight’s outdoor concert drew a sizable crowd to enjoy the always-fabulous West Seattle Big Band:

Providence Mount St. Vincent (WSB sponsor) has one more Friday night concert to go – next week it’s Steve Rice and Big Squeezy. To go with our video clip from tonight, here’s a photo just sent to us by Karen:


And one more photo from WSB-land — it wouldn’t be a REAL West Seattle summer night without a spectacular sunset:


Thanks to Relaena Sindelar for sharing that incredible view.

    Ha! Mr. Puffin and I saw somebody with a videocam during that song and wondered if it was somebody from the Blog. Had I known, I would have said hello. It was a fun night and heartening to see such a diversity of ages enjoying this well attended concert.

    Gooooo 3Day walkers! I did the walk the last two years, and it was nose incredible experience. I’m a survivor – diagnosed at age 35 when my daughter was two and a half….and Kristi was her preschool teacher. Thanks for supporting this cause!
