Students raise funds for Seattle Children’s
For the past three years, two Issaquah High School juniors, Kim Bussing and Kaileen Dougherty, have raised funds for Seattle Children’s, collecting about $3,000.
The duo raised money this year by selling concessions at Destination Imagination, an annual education event where children competed in science, drama and other creative contests March 5 at Pacific Cascade Middle School.
This year, the girls raised more than $1,000.
“Both Kaileen and I are very passionate about supporting our community, and both of us had health scares after we were born,” Bussing said. “We want to be able to give back to Seattle Children’s and also be able to help give other children the chances we’ve been able to have.”
