Things were humming and jumping at the 21st Olalla Bluegrass Festival on August 18.
We had a very good sale of empty bowls, $2,700 compared with $1,300 last year.
The Gig Harbor Potters Guild donated over 200 hand made bowls.
The Olympic Peninsula Wood Turners Association made 36 bowls for us.
Chef Oliver Coldeen from the Inn at Gig Harbor made 100 servings of a delicious roasted corn tomato bisque.
He also personally served the soup for several hours. He was our designated celebrity chef.
The Bay Street Bistro's owner/chef John Strasinger provided 50 servings of a hearty Amish chicken and corn soup.
Christina donated 50 servings of their unique tasty Zucchini soup.
Since it was a relative cool day the soups were well received by the visitors to the Olalla Bluegrass Festival.
We also had over 100 servings of strawberry short cake provided by the Fred Meyer Markets in Gig Harbor and Port Orchard.
There were over 20 volunteer servers and workers from the Peninsula Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the food banks in our area:
FISH food bank in Gig Harbor
South Kitsap Helpline
Key Peninsula Community Services
THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS WORTHWHILE PROJECT A GREAT SUCCESS!!!
