Every autumn the Leschi Community Council holds a food drive to benefit the Rainier Valley Food Bank. Diane Morris has led the charge in recent years and done a fabulous job. This year we’re trying something new in an effort to involve more of the community. On Saturday October 15 at 2:00pm the LCC will host a pay-to-play Ultimate Frisbee game and tailgate potluck on the upper field of Leschi Park (next to the tennis court), proceeds to benefit RVFB. The cost to participate is $10 per player.
Our team captain is Jeff Floor. A few participants signed up at the ArtWalk on September 10, but we’re actively looking for more players, so whether you’re a seasoned Ultimate Frisbee veteran or brand new to the game, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact our team captain via email at email@example.com, see Yousef Shulman at the Leschi Market, or Yuki Igarashi at the Leschi Edward Jones office.
If you’re interested in participating in the event but not an Ultimate Frisbee player, we’re looking for volunteers to bring food for the after-game tailgate potluck. Please contact Amy Fink at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in helping with the potluck. And if neither playing nor cooking is in your wheelhouse, but you’d still like to participate, please come on over to the park to cheer on the team and/or donate to the food bank. We look forward to seeing you on October 15!
