Organic Bing Cherry Fundraiser

Hi friends! This is awkward. I feel weird even talking about this fundraiser, and yet I'm incredibly grateful for it. It's tricky. I'm uncomfortable talking about money, then it's double-y awkward discussing a fundraiser to help me pay for my medical treatments. The silver lining is that I'm not asking for your money. Actually, that's not true - I AM asking for your money, technically, but you get something in return! You get delicious fresh organic bing cherries at an incredibly low price. So there you go, if you love cherries like I do, it's a win-win situation. Unless you eat too many at once...

This Thursday, June 28th, from 11:00-1:00 pm my parents will be selling organic bing cherries at Emma Schmitz Memorial Overlook (also known as Mee-Kwa-Mooks Park) in West Seattle. Just look for the maroon dodge truck with the maroon trailer. You will probably notice the large ORGANIC sign (Thank you Oehlerich family at the Copy Shop in Ellensbug!). After that, they're headed to Friday Harbor. On Friday and Saturday they will be selling right in front of the Roche Harbor Grocery Store from 11:00-4:00 pm. The organic cherries are priced at $4.66/lb and they're packaged in 1.5 lb bags for $7.00 apiece.

The plan is to sell as many cherries as soon as possible. Way to state the obivious Jess, jeez. Anyway, if for some crazy reason we sell out we will close shop. Yep. I did it again. Obvious. Sorry, I'm just being awkward.

Thank you to anyone, in advance, for buying delicious cherries or for letting us set up shop. You are literally helping me stay alive and healthy. Both Danny and I, and of course my family, really appreciate it! I can not say enough how grateful I am.

Also, a massive thank you to Debbie Sandwith for letting us post up in front of the Roche Harbor Grocery Store this weekend!! Aaaaand, thank you to my buddy Libbey who connected us with the produce manager at Kings Market & Market Place for purchasing some fresh juicy organic bing cherries. So, whether you purchase your cherries out at Roche Harbor, or in town at Kings Market or Market Place you can feel great while satisfying your sweet tooth knowing that you've helped us tremendously.


  1. I would love to buy some cherries, but work on Thursday and won't be in the islands this weekend. Any other way to support this fundraiser and get some yummy cherries?

    I park at the 65th st park and ride near Greenlake Wed and Thurs for work, I could pick them up in the evening. I would buy 4# which I realize is a small drip in the bucket, so if it is too much trouble don't worry! (I meant to type 'drop in the bucket' but then realized drip was even more appropriate - ha).

    Shoot me an email if this would work at

    Also, I realize you don't know me, but I am a friend of Laura's, have met Danny a few times and think of you often!
