Maari Dickerson Fundraiser

Dear Friends and Supporters of Northwest Repertory Singers,

As many of you know, Maari Dickerson, daughter of our accompanist Margie Skreen and her husband, Dave Dickerson, has recently been diagnosed with a very rare, malignant tumor located between her eye and brain.  Maari has been receiving chemo treatments in Tacoma and will seek further treatment with proton beam therapy at Loma Linda in California.  This will require Maari to live in California for at least five weeks.  Dave and Margie have just received word that this treatment will not be covered by insurance.  They are hoping to have this decision reversed through an appeal process, but they will still incur enormous expenses involved with travel, lodging, etc.

We are asking your help and support for Maari and her family.  You can support in the following ways:

  1. Attend the fundraiser on Sunday, August 12th anytime from 3:00 p.m. until midnight.  (See poster below for details)
  2. Go to for more details about the fundraiser and to make a direct donation through Pay Pal.

I hope each of you will join the members of Northwest Repertory Singers in supporting Maari, her brother Aiden, Margie and Dave with your dollars and your prayers as they embark on this journey to beat this dreaded disease.  As Dave said..."Game on!" ...and I have faith that with your help and the grace of God, Maari will recover and live a long and productive life.

Thank you for your help.  You have my sincere appreciation.
