“We appreciate the opportunity to help make a difference in our community,” said Ron Allen, chairman of the Jamestown S'Klallam tribe based in Blyn.
“We have committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the foundation over the last 15-plus years, and since our health clinic in Sequim works closely with Olympic Medical Center, we know firsthand what a difference the foundation's fundraising has done for OMC operations.”
Sponsorships allow the foundation to give 100 percent of donated money to OMC, said Bruce Skinner, OMC Foundation executive director.
The tribe is joined by its business interests, including 7 Cedars Casino, Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course and the Longhouse Deli.
It also continues to be the title sponsor of the Red, Set, Go! Heart Luncheon and be involved in all other foundation fundraising events, including the Sonny Sixkiller Husky Legends Golf Tournament, Harvest of Hope and Festival of Trees, Skinner said.
