Members of GFWC Sokico Women’s Club held a Bunco fundraiser and membership event July 21 Pantera Lago Clubhouse in Kent to raise money for a Federal Way K-9 cop. Sokico members provided food, beverages, prizes and a GFWC program with visual poster boards for 25 guests - plus special guest and speaker Officer Kyle Buchanan of the Federal Way Police Department and his K-9 officer Kaiser. Kaiser was the hit of the event with his favorite toy ball on a leather tether, as he paced around the room for all to pet and play. Officer Buchanan displayed some training techniques with Kaiser and answered many questions from the guests. The funds raised will purchase a new Storm Patrol swat vest for the newest K-9 officer on the Federal Way Police Department, Vader, who recently turned 2 years old and is ready to be fitted for his new vest. To date, the club has raised $1,200 toward the purchase of Vader’s vest. Donations are welcome. Contact Linda Butcher at 253-927-6636 or ibslinda@comcast.net.
