Letters | You helped make independent living dream a reality

Life Enrichment Options, or LEO, held our Harvesting Hope luncheon on Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Pickering Barn in Issaquah.

A heartfelt thank you goes to everyone who attended and to those who sent donations to support our work of providing a quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities (www.lifeenrichmentoptions.org).  Your support creates true inspiration for us in working toward making the dreams of these people we love and care about so much come true.

Thank you to our sponsors: Polygon Homes NW, Milbrant Assoc., Clark Nuber, Mike Ernst and the Northwest Capital Group/Morgan Stanley, the Cedar Family Charitable Fund, Fred and Margaret Grimm Foundation, Rebecca Kitz, CPA, Eastside Consultants and the Whitaker Foundation.  Thank you to our raffle prize donors: Kathryn Stueckle, 12th Ave. Café, Starbucks, PCC, The Grange Supply, Ace Hardware, Hayes Nursery, QFC, Massage Envy, Seattle Sun Tan, Microsoft MSCIS Quality Team, Nursery at Mount Si, Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley Restaurant & Nightclub.

We want to thank all of our table captains and volunteers with special acknowledgement to Bill Petschl, John Curley and Howard McOmber and his drama players, for a heart-warming and poignant presentation. They all helped make the luncheon a success.

The nest egg to build our fourth adult family home, which will make dreams of independent living come true for five more young adults, is well on its way because of the generosity of our donors.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Life Enrichment Options, thank you so very much!

Nancy Whitaker

President, Board of Directors, Life Enrichment Options
