SEQUIM — “A Night at the Museum” is coming to life with a variety of activities and proceeds donated to the Robby Streett Legacy Fund.
The event from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday on Cedar Street will offer a car wash, a blood drive, storytelling with the Sequim Irrigation Festival Royalty Court, face-painting, Sequim Museum & Arts activities and tours, a book swap, a bake sale and music from local musicians.
Robby Streett and his father, Robert Streett, died in a car wreck in 2017 and are survived by Josslyn Streett and Sawyer Streett.
Admission is free and almost everything else is by donation (with exceptions for food, beverages and face painting).
The Robby Streett Legacy Fund is raising money to purchase new furniture for the Sequim High School Library, one of Robby’s favorite places.
“It’s all in honor of Robby Streett,” said Annie Armstrong, one of the event’s organizers and a 2018 Sequim High grad and former senior class president.
“It’s more of a healing event for people who knew him; we want to turn this really bad thing into a good thing.”
Friends, family and classmates of Robby organized a movie night earlier this year at Deer Park Cinema with the showing of “Ready Player One” — a movie based on Robby’s favorite book — and those proceeds also were donated to the Legacy Fund.
Armstrong said the event is going to be a time of healing for many family and friends of the Streetts and organizers hope it can serve as a celebration of life.
“We want people to go because it’s going to be fun,” Armstrong said. “It’s something [Robby] would have really liked to see and have participated in.”
Armstrong also said the blood drive is meant to help donate blood to those in need.
“It’s helping save other people who get into these situations,” she said.
Organizers said several Sequim businesses and community members donated their time and services, including Sequim Museum & Arts, Rainshadow Cafe, Alderwood Bistro, Sequim High’s boys and girls swim teams, the Sequim Irrigation Festival Royalty Court, Bloodworks, Sequim High ASB, bands and musicians and other community members that are donating their time for the cause.
Armstrong recommends those interested in donating blood contact her ahead of the event to schedule an appointment to do so. She can be reached at 360-477-8508.
