Langley resident presents checks to nonprofits

Langley resident Janice O’Mahony is donating $4,200 in total to two non-profit organizations on the South End.

O’Mahony is writing checks for the League of Women Voters and Sno-Isle Libraries after raising the funds from her successfully organized constitution lectures in June.

O’Mahony is donating $2,100 to each organization. She handed a check to the League of Women Voters on Aug. 3 and is slated to present a check to the Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Director on Aug. 10 at the Langley Library.

The three lectures, which were held at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, were given by Seattle University Professor of Law Andrew Siegel. Siegel is a prominent public speaker and a regular commentator on the Supreme Court for national and local media.

According to O’Mahony and Barbara Seitle, a co-organizer who is also involved with the League of Women Voters, all three lectures were sold out.

“It was very successful,” Seitle said. “We were sold out and some people did not show, but they didn’t ask for refunds. We were able to sell the seats because people were waiting in line.”

“We’re delighted to be able to pass the money along because the League of Women Voters does civic engagement projects all the time, and that’s also the agenda for Sno-Isle Libraries,” Seitle said.
