West Seattle Eagles collect $500 for cancer survivor Tracy Dart
by Kristina Todd
On Thursday, July 19th, the West Seattle Eagles Auxiliary, F.O.E. #2643, presented 3-time breast cancer survivor and West Seattle resident, Tracy Dart, with a check for $500.
As part of their charity fundraising efforts, the ladies auxiliary had raised the money through benefit dinners and various fundraising activities over the past year.
This is a perfect example of the Eagle motto of "people helping people" - in particular within our neighborhood of West Seattle.
Tracy Dart adds: "The money raised by the Eagles was for "Team Tracy" walking the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure in September. This was not a donation to me personally. Thank you for acknowledging the West Seattle Eagles F.O.E. No. 2643 and the great work that they do!!! We have raised $20,000 so far this year and will probably by closer to $30,000 by the time we walk in September. Since our first walk in 2006, our team has raised close to $200,000 for Susan G. Komen. Here's the link to donate. http://www.the3day.org/goto/TEAMTRACY2012
Eagle Holly Hunsaker Gregg adds: "The check was donated in memory of our sister, Linda Crank."
