Apple Stock to raise funds for local family today, Saturday

The two-day event will also collect goods for a food bank.

SEQUIM — A group of churches is bringing back Apple Stock with the goal of raising funds for a family in need and an area food bank.

Apple Stock 2016 is a two-day music event set today and Saturday at Williams Manor, 4043 Sequim-Dungeness Way.

Entry to all events will be free with a canned food donation for the Independent Bible Church food cupboard.

Festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. today with “Concert Under the Stars and Round the Fire,” performed by Abby Mae &Dylan Witherow and the David Issac Rivers Band.

Gates will open at 5 p.m. Concessions and s’mores roasting will be by donation. Attendees are urged to bring blankets and jackets.

From noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, live worship music from seven local church bands will entertain during a picnic and apple cider pressing. Gates will open at 11:30 a.m.

Bands scheduled to play include musicians from King’s Way Foursquare Church, Eastern Hills Community Church, Sequim Bible Church and Independent Bible Church, plus Grafted In and, to close the day’s festivities, Jonathan Simonson and the Band of Dry Bones.

An upper-room church service will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Funds raised will benefit Shayla Nash and her five daughters after the loss of her husband last spring.

“She [Nash] is just the sweetest person,” said event organizer Mark Schwartz of Williams Manor.

“It was easy to pick a beneficiary this year.”

The event also raises funds and food for the IBC food cupboard in Port Angeles, which has a ministry to the homeless in the downtown area.

“There’s a tremendous need down there,” Schwartz said.

Chili dogs, baked potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, dessert potluck and jugs of fresh-pressed cider will be sold by donation.

The 2015 Apple Stock event saw about 750 attendees, Schwartz said, and raised funds for My Choices and assisting with medical bills for two local cancer survivors.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Schwartz via email at schwartzme@live.com or 360-504-2512.
