Kay Knox, of Within Reach, speaks on her organization’s efforts to provide assistance with healthcare issues to our community’s disadvantaged citizens:

Lori Heagler, of Autism Speaks NW, on why we’re Lighting it up Blue this month!

Marty Shaw of Cocoon House:
More than 34% of the total homeless population is under the age of 24. Cocoon House is a non-profit that conducts outreach to, and provides short and long term housing for homeless and at-risk young people, including their children. Parents of teens can also find support for themselves and their families at Cocoon House so that young people do not become homeless. The comprehensive approach of Cocoon House ensures that each young person is met where they are, physically and emotionally, to ensure the best possible outcomes for their future. Young people connect with Cocoon House staff when in our programs, in their schools, or out on the street. Parents are provided with services to help keep their teen in the home, or provide the smoothest transition possible if the teen is returning home from homelessness.

Jon Pretty is organizing a memorial benefit for a friend (Michael Brooks) who was killed last June in a car accident while on his way to work. The event benefits the Outdoors For All Foundation (a group that helps people with disabilities enjoy the outdoors), and an education fund that was set up for Michael’s kids (his son McCoy 11 and daughter Finley 9). He is selling tickets to the Mike Brooks Memorial Bobbleheads & Brews event at Crystal Mountain on April 15 via Twelve local craft breweries are donating product for the event, along with merchandise from the Sounders, Seahawks, Mariners and other local merchants for an on-hill scavenger hunt and a silent auction. There will also be live music, raffle prize drawings, and rootbeer floats for the kids.
