Editor, The Beacon:

The South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club hosted its 20th annual Spring Auction on April 4 at the Tulalip Casino and Resort. During the last 20 years, this auction has raised over $2 million for local charities, student scholars and international causes.

This year, the Rotary Club selected Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center as its “Fund a Need” organization.

Dawson Place protects and heals kids that are victims of child abuse and sexual assault in Snohomish County. The Rotarians and guests were introduced to Ivy Jacobsen, a survivor of sexual abuse and a Dawson Place service user.

Ivy shared her story about how Dawson Place helped her heal from her abuse and become the proud and confident woman that she is today. The room responded with an outpouring of generosity that was both humbling and awe-inspiring.

Over $64,000 was raised during this portion of the program!

As a guest, I was moved by the Fund a Need section of the evening. I felt immense gratitude toward the devoted individuals in the room, and to the South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club for selecting Dawson Place as their Fund a Need organization.

Words are not enough to thank the attendees for their incredible support, and for improving the lives of the children and families that we serve every day. Thank you.


Lori Vanderburg,


Dawson Place
