A fundraiser called “Dinner at the Well” will be held Saturday, March 21, at the Artesian Commons in downtown Olympia.
Each $50 ticket buys two gourmet meals — one for the buyer and one for someone who lives on the streets downtown. The catered meal will be held in a heated tent with seatings at noon and 3 p.m. The Artesian Commons is home to the historic artesian well and is a popular gathering spot for the street community.
Most of the food is being donated by downtown restaurants, said Renata Rollins, PiPE board member. Proceeds will go toward PiPE’s community-building activities at the park such as craft workshops, talent shows, movie nights and more. Event organizers note: “There’s a lot of talk about improving downtown, but any way you slice it, the best solutions usually involve food.”
