Soroptimist's fundraiser for the Cancer Mission was held last Saturday, May 9, at Jimmy's Paradise Cafe and Paradise Lanes and raised $12,754.00. With 84 dinners sold, including the 43 bowlers, the Paradise Party event was also well attended.

The community of San Juan Island supported the event by generously sponsoring the bowlers with donations, buying raffle tickets at the markets and attending the dinner the night of the Bowl-a-thon

Marie DiCristina said "So many people came together to make this a success it was heartwarming. We have all had our lives touched by someone who has dealt with cancer."

This fundraiser helps ease the stress by supplying transportation for our local cancer patients to get treatments off island.

The Soroptimists would like to send "A big thank you to everyone that participated in raising these funds." And they also would like to remind everyone that one can still donate by sending a check to Soroptimist Cancer Fund, P. O. Box 2856, FH -or learn more about services or the club at http://www.sifri.org/ (Soroptimist International Friday Harbor).
