THE STORY:

  • When Rowan Parker fell in love with Dane Kuttler five years ago, he couldn't wait to share Seabeck with her. He called it "the most important event of the year."
  • Rowan has come to Seabeck every Memorial Day weekend for more than 25 of his 30 years. He's been teaching in the youth program for ten of those years, making puppets and going on monster hunts with Seabeck's youngest participants.
  • Dane quickly found her home in the Seabeck middle school program and has been creating joy and mayhem with the 6th and 7th graders for five years. FIVE YEARS OF MIDDLE SCHOOL. And she's good at it. Just ask Jennie Tucker, head of youth programs. Or the middle schoolers.
  • In 2013, Dane and Rowan got married at Seabeck, surrounded by a gaggle of family, friends and longtime students. Their students wrote songs for them, painted a mural that still hangs on their wall, and blessed them by showering them with candy.
  • When Dane and Rowan aren't teaching your Seabeck kids, they're hosting other events over Memorial Day weekend; Dane's done writing workshops, and last year, Dane and Rowan co-hosted the first-ever workshop on creating a safer, more joyful church for transgender congregants.
  • Here's the part where they need your help: This year, Dane and Rowan are opening their home to foster kids in their now-home state of Massachusetts. They're not sure what the future's going to bring, but they do know that they're determined to share the very best of their lives with any kid that comes to live with them. That includes Seabeck.
  • They still plan to bring their all to the youth programs (Dane in middle school, Rowan with 2nd or 3rd graders). But they can't do it alone. Help Dane and Rowan get to Seabeck. Your donations will cover their travel expenses and extra classroom supplies.
  • Help them stay connected with the most important part of their Seattle family - YOU! Donate here; no amount is too small or too big!
