LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Whidbey Children’s Theater event a great success


To our community: If you were with us on Saturday, May 24, you would have seen magic happen.

Over 80 people — artists, patrons, family and friends — came together at Whidbey Children’s Theater to celebrate another amazing year and raise much needed funds to keep the magic alive.

What an incredible community. The rooms were filled with a breathtaking display of talent, compassion and generosity; people who care about art, community and creating opportunities for children to participate in this dynamic program.

There is no question that WCT kids are your kids. The program that has lived on South Whidbey for over 30 years remains popular because it continues to serve as a home-away-from-home for so many of our community’s youth, and this past year more children than ever were able to participate.

While we didn’t meet our fundraising goal at this year’s event, we look forward to another dynamic season, and want to acknowledge our deep, heart-felt appreciation for the amazing artists who donated all or a portion of their art sales to WCT — please visit our webpage for a complete list of that generous crew: www.whidbeychildrenstheater.org.

And thanks to Bloom’s Winery, Glass Alley Cafe, JW Desserts, Sweet Mona’s, Joe’s Wood Fired Pizza, and Useless Bay Coffee Company for providing their scrumptious edibles to make our evening such a savory success. Your generous contributions made our event special and demonstrated, once again, the commitment of this community to its members. Truly inspiring.

A special shout out to Melinda and Keith Mack, Sophia Goode, Kris Rodden and the unbelievable Sue Averett of Inspired Arts in Freeland for their gifts of time and energy.

And a big, huge thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone who contributed at ART-a-palooza; for being a part of the WCT family, for celebrating our program, these lovely young people, and the children yet to come who will have a chance to participate because people like you care enough to keep the magic alive.

With deep gratitude,


Whidbey Children’s Theater
