Tones 4 Crohn’s thanks

Published July 15, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation NW Chapter Endurance Manager Amanda Mendum today issued a note of thanks to all who participated in the weekend fundraising event at Seafarers’ Memorial Park. “Thank you to the Anacortes community for supporting the 5th Annual Tones 4 Crohn’s Benefit Concert!” she wrote. “Beautiful weather, great live music, awesome silent auction packages and lots of fun was had by all! We raised well over $5,000. We are ecstatic by your support year after year. Thank you for helping us get closer to cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
