Letter: Thanking restaurant for supporting Relay for Life

Editor,

I would like to send out a special thanks to the owners of the Tyee Restaurant in Coupeville, Steve and Sue Hallen, for very generously donating all tips and proceeds on May 29, 2018 to team Anna’s Army for their fundraising efforts for Relay for life and the American Cancer Society.

Anna’s Army team members were invited to serve customers in the restaurant between the hours of 2-8 p.m. We were able to raise $1,277 during this time. We would also like to thank manager Amanda Maksinchuk for donating her time to help make this a success. We couldn’t have done it without you. It feels great to live in a community that comes together to support each other.

Thank you from Anna’s Army. ( Annemarie Mattice, Ed Sullivan, Cathy Collyer, Alex and Ranelle Greco, Cindy McDougall, Mike Hammet, Reena Lori Lov, Sherry Engibritson and Julie Jansen)
