Do it for the thrill of competition.

Do it for the glow of being #1.

Do it for the homemade cookies.

But whatever you do it for, just do it.

With Race the Reserve — the biggest fundraiser for the Coupeville High School Class of 2023 — set for Saturday, Aug. 13, organizers are scrambling to field a full team of volunteers.

They’ve launched a competition between Wolf fall sports teams, with the team with the most volunteers nabbing the Golden Shoe Award and a batch of cookies from acclaimed cook Helene Lhamon.

It’s a royal rumble between volleyball, soccer, tennis, cross country, and football, with a tasty finale.


Volunteers are currently needed for:

Food Team (1)
Parking (3)
Photographer (1)
Race clean-up (9)
Race set-up (2)
Registration (5)
Water at Hill Road (1)
Water at Wanamaker (2)

Do it for Mittens.

And Sparky, and Lil’ Lulu, and the Colonel.

Take part in a bowling fundraiser for the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation this weekend, and your lane activity will benefit the pooches and kitties of the Island.

WAIF is hosting an event at Oak Bowl & Mario’s Pizza (531 SE Midway Blvd) Sunday, July 31 with proceeds going to benefit its work.

The fundraiser runs from 1:00-3:30 PM, costs $20 per person and covers two hours of bowling plus shoe rental.

There will also be a 50/50 raffle (cash only!) with $10 tickets. Hit the jackpot and you take home half the ticket sales.

Money raised from the fundraiser will help WAIF with general operations and its animal welfare program.

That includes things such as spay/neuter coupons for low-income households, as well as food, toys and medication for the animals.

Register in advance for the fundraiser at waifanimals.org/lets-bowl and you’ll be eligible to nab one of two $50 gift cards from Popsies, a popcorn/ice cream/candy store in Oak Harbor.

Just a fraction of the high achievers in the Coupeville Class of 2023.

It could be legendary.

Coupeville High School’s Class of 2023 is currently projecting 93 graduates for next spring, which would be double the average size of recent years.

Before they get to the moment when they walk across the stage at Micky Clark Field to accept their diplomas, Wolf seniors will be at the forefront of athletics and academics at the school this coming year.

In preparation for grad week festivities, Coupeville parents are hard at work raising money to celebrate their students’ accomplishments.

Race the Reserve goes down in August, concession sales will be open at volleyball, football, basketball, and track events during the 2022-2023 school year, and the class has launched a GoFundMe.

Money raised goes to fund a drug and alcohol-free graduation night celebration for the Class of 2023.

Many hands make light the work.

The runners are coming, and so are the fundraising opportunities.

The annual Ragnar Relay, which sends teams from Blaine to Langley over the course of two days and a night, kicks off today.

As the runners descend like locusts on Whidbey, the Coupeville High School Class of 2023 is taking advantage.

Students, parents, and other volunteers will be selling breakfast to participants, with profits going to post-graduation festivities.

The Class of 2023 is also helping flag traffic in Langley from 1:30-8:30 PM Saturday and is still in need of more volunteers.

Completing that task will garner an $850 donation for the CHS students.

Let ’em spike the dirt from your vehicle.

Coupeville volleyball players will be armed with brushes and hoses this coming weekend, holding a car wash fundraiser.

The event goes down at Ebey Academy starting at 10 AM — just down the street from the annual Lion’s Club garage sale — and helps the spikers pay for volleyball camps and related activities.

Pro tip — keep an eye out this week, as several of the players have been spotted out in front of Prairie Center Market, pre-selling tickets.
