Rotary raises $64K for Dawson’s Place
The South Everett Mukilteo Rotary Club 2015 Auction raised $64,100 for Dawson’s Place Child Advocacy Center, a local Everett nonprofit that improves the lives of abused children. A check was delivered Aug. 21 by Rotary President Martin Cross to Lori Vanderburg, Dawson’s Place executive director. “This donation literally brought tears to the eyes of our staff.
