Down Syndrome Association of Snohomish Gig

Downs2016-DennisClowns

On September 24, 2016, six of us clowns played for our 4th year supporting the Buddy Walk, held at the old airfield in Snohomish County.

Joining us this year was a very special celebrity guest to the event- Dennis Bounds, recently retired King TV news anchor. Dennis jumped right in learning to sculpt balloon dogs and interacting with the kids. He stayed with us for the entire event helping out.

Also, a great help at the event were members of Boy Scout Troop 36 from Lake Stevens. The event netted over $15,000 to help kids with down syndrome.

Attending the festivities were CoCo, Duffy, Flossy, Flora, LaLa and Scooter.

We are continuing our discussions with the Association to put on a clown class for the kids, with donations going to benefit the Association. (This would be follow-on to classes we have previously held for kids with down syndrome in Tacoma and Detroit.)

Last, but certainly not least, as we typically do when we take the ferry, we played with kids on the ride home.

For all us clowns,
