San Juan Island is such a wonderful, generous community. A need arises and most people step up to help fellow Islanders.

On Christmas Eve 2020, Yvonne Bowman suddenly lost her beloved husband Gary. This tremendous loss also caused a huge financial burden for her. And so a fundraiser was born.

Posters appeared in Friday Harbor businesses, a Benefit for Yvonne website was created and advertising was donated to promote the Gary Bowman Memorial Fund at Banner Bank.

The goal was to raise at least $25,000. Well, fellow Islanders, we achieved our goal! The account will still be open but we are concluding advertising.

Yvonne is very, very grateful and sends a huge, heartfelt appreciation to everyone who contributed.

We are all so blessed to live here and to be a part of this truly special San Juan Island community.
