Dearest Goodtimes Community,
After a wonderful spring and summer season of programming and community building, we have a few updates on staffing within The Goodtimes Project (GTP). As many of you know, Tanya “Cooper” Krohn has started her sabbatical and will return in early 2019, and Becky “Backpack” Felak is energetically planning the upcoming programming for the remainder of 2018 and into the new year.
After four fantastic years, Tina “Tri” Davis has accepted an offer to become Development Director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. We are so grateful for all Tina has done for The Goodtimes Project and our Goodtimes community over the last four years and wish her the very best in this endeavor. Over the last four years, GTP fundraising has grown significantly, our gala has ascended to new levels of greatness, and we have been able to invest in the growth of our mission and community by adding new programs. Below is a message from Tina upon her departure:
Dear Goodtimes Family,
It is with mixed emotions that I share my decision to leave The Goodtimes Project. While this was a difficult decision, I have accepted a position with the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) Seattle office.
It’s hard to believe that four short years ago I joined this merry band of go getters! What we have accomplished in that time is nothing short of amazing…bringing a new start up business to a thriving and expanding organization. Your determination to keep Camp Goodtimes available to this community motivated me to exceed my own expectations. I have grown and learned so much during my time here and can never express the gratitude I have for the opportunity to work with such extraordinary people.
Thank you all for making my time here remarkable. I will miss being so deeply involved, but I will always have SNOJ to keep me going. 😊
Thanks again for your friendship and support.
Tina “Tri” Davis
During this time of transition, Bridget “Sweeper” Dolan has agreed to help guide the organization as the Interim Executive Director. Bridget has been volunteering with The Goodtimes Project for eight years in a variety of roles, including Camp Goodtimes staff, Goodtimes Gala planning committee, and Board Member. Her dedication to the organization as a volunteer has been impressive and commendable. Bridget has worked in nonprofit management for the last 12 years and recently achieved her master’s degree in Nonprofit Leadership from Seattle University. Bridget will be joining us after serving as the Philanthropic Events Supervisor at Woodland Park Zoo, in charge of raising more than $2.4 million annually in support of their conservation mission. Bridget is eager to get started in this new role and will begin on October 15. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions or wish to congratulate her on this exciting new role.
While change can be hard, we are excited and hopeful for the next chapter in our organization’s life. Thank you for all of you hard work and support to make The Goodtimes Project what it is today.
