Kiwanis Club of Kirkland opens Christmas tree lot today REPORTER STAFF
With Christmas just around the corner, the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland is gearing up for their biggest fundraiser of the year. Since 1971, the club has sold Christmas trees, wreaths, gourmet nuts and Sees Candy, with all funds going to support children in the Kirkland community. For the second year, the tree lot will be located in the parking lot at Juanita Beach Park. It opens Friday, Nov. 29 and will stay open until Dec. 23 or until the trees are gone. Tree lot hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The trees are freshly cut with the first
HAPPENINGS Bartell Drugs and Salvation Army team up to provide gifts for children in need Bartell Drugs is once again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its 10th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N’ Joy” drive through Dec. 14. “The drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children,” said George D. Bartell, Chairman and CEO of Seattle-based Bartell Drugs. “The generosity and support of our customers over the past nine years has been gratifying.” The toy donations will be accepted at all Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.” The five-week drive in 2012 generated over 5,400 toy donations by Bartell’s customers—the estimated equivalent of $81,300 in toys to the Salvation Army. Donation options include: • Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it.
shipment being delivered just before the lot opens and a second shipment in midDecember, ensuring that the trees are as fresh as possible when you purchase them.

They include: KITH, March of Dimes, Music in the Park, student scholarships, special olympics, What’s Next Bowlers, Adopt-a-Highway, scouting, Kiwanis Camp Casey, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Easter Egg Hunt, and the Kirkland Teen Union Building.

KPC presents “A Charlie Brown Christmas” with David Benoit
ated, recorded, and performed a variety of projects related to his reverence for Vince Guaraldi. Benoit’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” concert includes performance of the selections from the beloved holiday recording with the Benoit quartet accompanied by a local children’s choir. Since launching his recording career in 1977, David Benoit’s expansive career as a contemporary jazz pianist and composer has included over 25 solo recordings. His ’80s releases This Side Up, Freedom at Midnight and the Grammy-nominated Every Step of the Way are considered influential genre classics. Among his other Grammy nominations are those for Best Instrumental Composition for “Dad’s Room,” from 1999’s Professional Dreamer, and Best Large Jazz Ensemble Performance for the GRP All-Star Big Band. His prolific output since 2000 includes several prominent Charlie Brown-related projects, including Here’s To You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years and the star-studded 40 Years: A Charlie Brown Christmas, that reflect his lifelong passion for the music of original Peanuts composer Vince Guaraldi and solidify Benoit’s role as his musical heir. B enoit has also released the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charting albums Fuzzy Logic, Right Here, Right Now, Full Circle and Heroes, which paid homage to the pianist’s top jazz and pop influences. Tickets for this event are $25 for adults and $15 for youth and can be purchased at www.kpcenter.org.
