Want a sports physical, but don’t want to go out of your way to set up an appointment with a doctor?

Won’t someone think about the children?

Central Whidbey Cooperative Preschool, a beloved local institution for more than 40 years, has helped generations of children grow, and its work continues.

CWCP, which is a non-profit, is getting ready for its biggest fundraiser of the year, the “Wine, Bids & Co-op Kids” event Mar. 24.

The event, an evening of appetizers, music and a silent auction, will run from 6-8 PM and is intended for those 21 and older.

The funds raised go to lower the cost of tuition for enrolled families, replenish the CWCP scholarship fund and purchase school supplies.

There are numerous ways for the public to help, from buying tickets (just $10 a pop), bidding on items, and through donations, either monetary or with items which can be auctioned off during the evening.

No item is too big or too small, and could include just about anything — homemade, hand-crafted, a service, gift certificates, gift baskets, etc.

All donations are 100% tax deductible, and individuals and organizations will be acknowledged at the event, on Facebook and through a public message to the families which use CWCP.

Plus, if you donate an item for the auction, you nab two tickets to the event for free.

To purchase tickets or make donations, contact Mandi Murdy at 360-632-2069, Tami Aparicio at 360-632-5071 or email cwcpfundraising@gmail.com.

And to get a feel for everything the co-op preschool accomplishes, pop over to:

A fundraiser has been started to help Landen Miller’s family.

The 33-year-old Coupeville High School grad, a father of five, died Monday after a rollover car crash on South Ebey Road.

Miller worked in the ER at the WhidbeyHealth Medical Center, and could often be spotted at Central Whidbey Little League games involving his children.

During his time at CHS, he played tennis and baseball for the Wolves before graduating with the Class of 2002.

“Great kid, hard working, always a smile, very quiet demeanor but impactful with his play,” is how former Wolf baseball coach Willie Smith describes Landen.

To help Miller’s wife, Alicia, and their children, and read much more about Landen’s impact on the local community, jump over to:
