On behalf of the White River Sting basketball program, I wanted to say thank you for your community support. The 2015-16 basketball season was our 3'd year as a program and we saw a lot of great things happen both on and off the court. The program grew in numbers - from 6 to 10 teams, over 70 youth playing basketball on the plateau preparing for White River High School basketball. The program offered additional training opportunities by partnering with Advantage sports and hosted two (2) tournaments at Glacier Middle School. Each participant played over 20 basketball games and had 2 practices per week. In addition, each player received a new uniform, sweatshirt, and shooting shirt. The financial support we receive from our sponsors helps us keep the cost to a minimum for the parents of this program. We decreased the program price by $100 per participant for the 2015-16 season solely on the money we raised from the basketball tournaments we host. Thank you, Rachel Marecle, Sting Basketball Board President.

Thank you for your generous donation to the 2015 Enumclaw Empty Bowls event! This event brings many people together to share their gifts and talents in a united effort to minimize hunger in our community. Potters and local crafts people create handcrafted bowls. Local restaurants and food establishments provide soups, and rolls. Even our Assisted Living residents participate by providing cookies. Guests arrive to the event for a simple soup meal, eager to choose a unique bowl which they keep as a symbol and reminder of all the empty bowls in the world and in our local community. It is always fun to hear from those that have attended the event about what a memorable event it is, and how indeed, the hand-crafted bowl they have selected is a continuing reminder through the years of the events purpose. Over the past 4 years we have been able to give 100% of the proceeds raised (totaling almost $23,000) to the two Enumclaw/Plateau area food banks. We couldn’t do this without you and your support of this event is appreciated! Enumclaw Empty Bowls Planning Committee

A very warm thank you for the generous donation given to the White River High School choral program. We were in desperate need of new uniforms and with your gift, we have outfitted our Show Choir with gorgeous new dresses and tuxes. Our Chamber Choir now has black formals and tuxes with matching accessories. Our professional appearance will help raise the bar for years to come. We are incredibly grateful for your help.

Dear Friends: You make a positive difference in our community! Thank you for your $500 donation to the Auburn Valley Y's 2013 Annual Support Campaign. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help children, adults and families in your community to learn, grow and thrive. People like Collin. Since the age of two, Collin had a severe weight problem. At seven-years-old Collin decided he wanted to go on a diet because he weighed over 150 pounds. Collin participated in a Youth Fitness Training at the Y and, with the support of his family, began to change his lifestyle. He lost 30 pounds, lowered his blood pressure, and was able to play sports with his friends. His parents said, "The doctor was amazed. It made us cry to hear her explain to Collin that he had added 20 years to his life." Thank you again for your generous commitment to the YMCA -- you have made an invaluable investment in our shared future. Please contact me at jberry@seattleymca.org or 253.876.7550 if you have any questions about our programs, or would like to see your donation at work. Sincerely, Jason Berry Branch Executive

Dear Helac Corporation, We would like to personally express “A HEART FELT THANK YOU" for your generous donation to the EHS Youth Heart Screening Event put on by the Nick of Time Foundation. Your support made it possible for 321 youth ages 14-24 to attend this event for "FREE" ? !!! The 30 min. screening included a BP station, a detailed family heart history, a 12 Lead EKG- reviewed on-site with a Cardiologist, and an ECHO if needed. The students received CPR & AED training and each student left with a baseline of their heart health. The combined efforts of volunteers (medical & non-medical), in-kind and financial donations made this event a success! Due to all of your efforts 9 youth were identified as needing follow up and/ or monitoring. These screenings are saving lives... "ln the Nick of Time", it would not have been possible without YOUR DONATION & the support from the Enumclaw community! The awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth is the goal and prevention is the key! Please know that your involvement in this event helped to save lives, which makes Enumclaw a proactive Heart Healthy community! ? Warmest Regards, Carol Gunderson-Nilsen (Enumclaw Community Champion Volunteer) Mike Nelson (Enumclaw School District Superintendent)

Thank you very much for your tax deductible gift of $5,000.00 in support of the Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation, and representing your Sponsorship of the Holiday Fantasy Auction to be held on December 6, 2013, at Emerald Downs in Auburn. This letter is a receipt for your Check#81218 in that amount. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution. The Federal Tax ID number for Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation is 91-1192604. The Gala has raised more than $2.4 million over the past 22 years to support vital hospital equipment, programs and services to the Plateau's growing community. Last year we were able to fund the Care Van, which takes patients with no means of transportation to local healthcare appointments free of charge. In addition, we funded the monthly Mobile Dental Van for another year, which provides free dental care to low- income children and adults, the homeless and others who have urgent dental care needs and lack insurance or a realistic way to pay for treatment. As always, we welcome and encourage your suggestions, comments and assistance. Tell us your ideas of how we may better serve our communities' healthcare needs or volunteer your time at one of our local community events. To find out how you can help, please log on to our website at www.enumclawrhf.org or contact the Foundation office at 360-802-3206. Again, thank you for your generous gift and support. The Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation could not have the impact it does without you! Warmest regards, Rene' Papke Executive Director

Again, thank you for your support of Chinook Little League! We look forward to many more seasons of us working together. Sincerely, Eric Thomas, Chinook Little League, Sponsorship Director
