Pizza business to help Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center offer free youth pass

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM –– Domino’s Pizza in Sequim is partnering with the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center to raise funds that will be used to purchase monthly passes for youths from low-income homes.

Domino’s will donate $1 for every “SARC Special” pizza sold through the end of this month.

“I am so excited about this thing with Domino’s,” said Sue Sorensen, chair of the SARC board of directors.

Sorensen said the Domino’s benefit will replace funding lost from an anonymous benefactor who used to donate annually to fund memberships for low-income youths and disabled adults.

The donor died five years ago, Sorensen said.

Children whose families qualify for free or reduced lunches through the Sequim School District can apply for the free memberships.

Chris Farmer, owner of the Domino’s franchise in Sequim, said he came up with the idea after an employee complained he could not afford a SARC membership.

“We figured there had to be other people out there with the same thing, so we came up with this,” Farmer said.

Monthly passes for youths ages 8-17 are $26.17, Sorensen said.

Additional donations can be made through Domino’s, 755 W. Washington St., or through the mail to SARC, 610 N. Fifth Ave., Sequim, WA 98382. Put “Project Domino’s” on the check.
