Care Abounds in Communities in Ketchikan for Dennis Weis
By Pam Christianson

I wanted to thank you for your caring contribution towards the Care Abounds in Communities grant for Dennis Weis.  At the spaghetti dinner on Tuesday, there were wonderful performances by the bell choir, children’s choir and jump ropers. A total of $3400 was made in contributions.  Spaghetti sauces w/ and w/out meat, salad, beverage and a dessert – all donated by area restaurants (sauces - Oceanview & Cape Fox), Alaskan & Proud, Tatsudas IGA, & supply warehouses.  Tickets were $10.00 per person and $35 for a family. Thank you again to all who were able to attend and/or volunteer and to those who contributed.

Ketchikan is such a caring & generous community.   So far, $4200.00 of the goal of $6000.00 has been raised.  Any amount would help Dennis with his medical expenses. Once this goal has been reached, there will be $3000.00 tacked on through this grant.

If you were unable to make it and would like to contribute – make your checks out to Houghtaling Elementary with “Dennis W.” in the memo.  You can drop it by the school or mail the check to:

Houghtaling Elementary
c/o P. Christianson or Jenn Walton
2940 Baranof Ave
Ketchikan, Alaska 99901

Again thank you for your kindness.

With much regards,
