LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | People needed to help IDIPIC

To the editor:

IDIPIC needs 128 people on June 30!

We hope your readers can help the Impaired Driving Impact Panel of Island County sell out all 128 seats to its annual fundraiser that day: “Comedy, Canapes, Magic & More!,” at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor.

All proceeds, which will be matched by Island Thrift, will go toward IDIPIC’s DUI and youth drug prevention work throughout Whidbey Island.

The entertaining evening begins 6:30 p.m. with canapes, enough to serve as dinner, donated by Arby’s, Dominos Pizza and Taco Bell. The fun then kicks off 7:30 p.m. with interactive magic and comedy by the Whidbey Improv Team and magic man J.R. Russell. During intermission, guests can mingle and munch some more while making their highest bid on awesome auction goodies.

Reserved seating tickets for all this fun are only $17.50 in advance by calling IDIPIC at 360-672-8219 or stopping by The Whidbey Playhouse.

Those who are unable to attend can still support IDIPIC’s work for “safer kids, safer roads” by mailing their donation to IDIPIC, P.O. Box 358, Oak Harbor, WA 98277.

All proceeds benefit IDIPIC’s prevention work, which includes DUI and underage drinking prevention panels, driver’s education class instruction at the high schools, underage drinking and other substance use prevention classes in middle schools, community events and more.

IDIPIC’s mission is to deter driving under the influence and underage drinking in our communities through education and awareness. The nonprofit organization has been serving Island County communities since 2000 and is a 501c3 charity.

More information on IDIPIC or the event, and a list of all event sponsors, can be found at www.idipic.org.
