Oso benefit

A group of Stanwood residents, in conjunction with United Way of Snohomish County, will host a Chili Cook-off and Raffle to benefit families and survivors of the Oso Landslide on April 19, 2015 from 2-10 pm at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center in Stanwood, WA. With more than 50 properties damaged in the March 22 slide and the death toll still rising, the emotional and financial burden is astronomical.

Most of the residents directly affected by the landslide are still paying mortgages on those properties, many of who were without the proper insurance to cover such an event. More obvious than the financial burden, is the loss of loved ones and those they

left behind.

“If you grew up in this area, there’s no way you don’t know someone effected by the Landslide,” said Craig Brask, event organizer and Camano Island resident. “We had to find a way to do our part.” Dr. Dennis G. Smith, President and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County promises 100% of donations and proceeds from the event will go directly to families and victims of the Oso Landslide.

The event will also feature live music, a raffle of donations from local businesses and sponsors, face painting and various other family friendly activities. Admission for the event will be free. A $5 donation is requested to sample and vote during the Chili Cook-off. For more information on the event and to find out how to participate in the cook-off contact Craig Brask at delton68@gmail.com. Any donations prior to the Chili Cook-off can be made to United Way of Snohomish County by visiting www.uwsc.org or mailing a check to United Way of Snohomish Count, Attn: Finance Dept., 3120 McDougall Ave., Ste. 200 Everett, WA 98201.
