Fairy Tale Dental and owner Dr. Helena Soomer Lincoln have made a $2,000 contribution to the Fort Ward Community Hall campaign.
The Winslow practice honored its pledge to donate the proceeds from dental cleanings in early 2017 to the campaign. The contribution was made through the Kitsap Great Give, a countywide giving event sponsored by the Kitsap Community Foundation.
The May 3 event brought in more than $2,500 for the Fort Ward project, including gifts from several first-time donors.
Fairy Tale Dental has emerged as a leading business sponsor of the community hall campaign, having given $3,400 to the project to date.
Dr. Lincoln and her family are residents of the Fort Ward neighborhood.
“We’re very fortunate to have Dr. Lincoln as a neighbor and friend,” said Stephanie Applebery, Friends of Fort Ward board member. “As her dental practice is giving so much back to our community, we hope islanders will support her practice in turn, and all of our local businesses that have given.”
Fairy Tale Dental is located at 115 Hall Brothers Loop NW, Suite 105 (in Madrone Village on Winslow Way West). A full range of care is offered, from exams and prevention to extractions, oral surgery and dentures. See www.fairytaledental.com for information.
The Fort Ward Community Hall project will see renovation of the fort’s 1910 bakery building, an island heritage site, as a public meeting, class and activity space. It will be the first community hall at the island’s south end, joining a roster of local historic park facilities that includes Seabold Hall, Island Center Hall and Camp Yeomalt.
The project is a three-way partnership between Friends of Fort Ward, the Bainbridge Island Park District, and Kitsap County (Fort Ward) Sewer District No. 7.
