Upcoming events to support Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team

The Snohomish County helicopter team is searching for way to keep operating, as they’ve lost a major source of funding.

The helicopter team is someone you never want to need. If you do, though, you’ll be very grateful they exist.

A couple events are coming up where you can support the team.

First, on Tuesday, March 11, see “Gorging: A Canyoneering Documentary” at 7:30 p.m. at Second Ascent in Seattle. Donations at the event will support the helicopter team. The documentary explores canyoneering through the stories of four different canyoneers. Get more info here.

Second, on Saturday, April 19, is the Support the Last Resort fundraiser dinner and auction at the Mountaineers program Center in Seattle. Get all the details and buy tickets, or simply donate, here.
