We at Liberty Bank are extremely happy to continue to support the Kathleen Sutton Fund Gala every year as an event sponsor and with our staff, who volunteer at the annual gala. This amazing organization reimburses transportation costs for women in Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap and Mason counties who are undergoing cancer treatments.
The fund began in 2003 as a small local grassroots organization to help pay transportation costs to women with breast cancer living in North Kitsap County. Due to the tremendous support of the community, grants, and the annual live/silent auction fundraiser, the Kathleen Sutton Fund has expanded its services to women with any type of cancer living in Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap, and Mason counties. To date the fund has reimbursed nearly $770,000 in travel expenses for 1,263 women!
Thank you to our Poulsbo branch manager Kelly Garcia, assistant branch manager Sheila Dennison, and professional banker Chelsie Calara for volunteering to staff the registration desk at this year’s Oct. 1 gala, held at the Kitsap Conference Center.
