The Mercer Island Preschool Association had an auction fundraiser for the Luther Burbank playground project. One of the auction items that was up for grabs was to go to the Mercer Island Thrift shop and meet singer Michael Wansley, who is featured as the base singer in Macklemore's #1 hit song Thrift Shop. They also got to enjoy pizza and other refreshments. Mercer Island Thrift shop would offer a 40% discount on all merchandise and those proceeds would benefit Mercer Island Youth and Family Services. It was going to be a time of giving for so many projects and services that support the youth in the community. How did I get involved? Well, a dear friend of mine was involved in the auction and thought it would be fun to do a "photo booth" style pictures of the Wanz and his many fans. Folks could dress up in thrift shop clothes and have some fun pictures taken.
