Saturday’s Harvest of Hope to feature ‘Dueling Pianos’

Goal is to raise $150K a for OMC cancer center

SEQUIM — A few tickets still were available on Tuesday for the Harvest of Hope Wine & Dinner Gala on Saturday.

The Olympic Medical Center Foundation, in conjunction with Arrow Marine Group and Sound Community Bank, is presenting the annual fundraiser at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Guy Cole Events Center, 202 N. Blake Ave., in Sequim. Tickets are $135 each or $1,080 for a table of eight and can be purchased at or by calling 360-417-7144.

The 21st annual gala will once again raise funds for local cancer patients being treated at Olympic Medical Cancer Center. Foundation representatives say they hope to raise $150,000 to purchase equipment that “will keep the center as a world class treatment center.”

To help fundraising efforts, the Elizabeth B. McGraw Foundation, headed by Lee McGraw, formerly of Sequim, will match every dollar raised up to $200,000. In addition, the event will feature the Jeff and Rhiannon Dueling Pianos Show — they will accept tips, with all proceeds going to the cancer center.

The group has performed for audiences all around the world at fundraisers, corporate events, private parties and theaters. They have shared the stage with several famous personalities and groups including Shaquille O’Neil, Three Dog Night and Michael Bolton.

“They have spectacular voices, phenomenal piano skills, and hilarious comedy,” Harvest of Hope chair Karen Rogers said.

The foundation has donated more than $3.8 million dollars to the Cancer Center, most of it raised at the Harvest of Hope event.

Barbara Cammack will be presented with the Rick Kaps Award, which annually recognizes organizations and individuals who have supported the cancer center. Barbara, her late husband Jim, and son Joe of Jim’s Pharmacy have contributed more to the Center’s Patient Navigator program — which pays for basic cost of living expenses for low income patients — than any other donors.

Attendees also will have an opportunity to help raise funds through the purchase of raffle tickets or live and silent auction items.
