Chamber members and guests at the Salute Woodinville “Sips Ahoy” gala and auction March 5th at Willows Lodge raised $10,775 to support the Northshore Wranglers new summer camp and respite programs.
As part of the new Wranglers-to-Camp program, Wranglers families may attend a special family weekend at Camp Sealth in May. In the summer, Wranglers will have an opportunity to attend an overnight or day camp accompanied by a Northshore Health & Wellness Center support staff member. The money raised will be used for scholarships and staff support.
Not only will the Wranglers have a wonderful outdoor camp experience, Wranglers parents will have a much-deserved and in most cases, a long-overdue break to enjoy time together in the sunshine or a date night out.
The Northshore Wranglers was begun in 1998 in Woodinville and is now an independent nonprofit with the Northshore Health & Wellness Center in Bothell, under the umbrella of the Northshore Senior Center. The Wranglers continues to deliver year-round, weekly and ongoing activities, including Special Olympic Sports, for individuals with disabilities of all ages, their parents and caregivers. As a regional program unique to its service area, the Wranglers program serves well over 100 individuals annually.
