Doll show planned in Port Angeles this Saturday

PORT ANGELES — Just Dolls of Washington Doll Club will present the 2017 Promise of Spring Doll Show on Saturday.

The show will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. Admission is $2; grand prize tickets are $1.

One door prize ticket will be given in exchange for bringing a donated canned food item to the show to benefit the Port Angeles Food Bank.

This year’s theme is “Dolly Adventures,” with doll club members and vendors in themed costumes.

Many local and out-of-area vendors will be on hand, offering everything from antique and modern dolls and bears to doll furniture and accessories.

Numerous door prize drawings for dolls, bears and accessories will be held throughout the day, with prizes offered by the doll club and vendors.

The grand prize this year is the American Girl Doll of the Year 2016, “Lea.”

Lea is dressed for an adventure to Brazil, where her big brother, Zac, is studying the rain forest. She comes with a trousseau of handmade clothing and accessories.

The proceeds from the grand prize drawing will benefit the Peninsula Home Fund and the World Wildlife Fund’s Adopt-a-Sloth program, in honor of endangered sloths in the rain forest.

A jar for contributions to help save sloth habitat will be available near the ticket counter.

Homemade soup and sandwiches are available for purchase at the show.

The first 30 people through the door will receive a stuffed sloth.
