PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH WALK - Event Recap
Located at Magnuson Park; a 350-acre park on Sand Point, Lake Washington, in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The park is the second largest in Seattle! It is located on the spot of the former Naval Station Puget Sound. This park was perfect for a 5k! 2 laps around the course would complete the race.
It was great to see all of the vendors and a special surprise from Top Pot Donuts. They donated 20 box of white and purple sprinkled treats. The Foundation provided me with a stage and generator to keep me powered and keep the runners motivated to walk/run.
This event was tough for me having lost my mother to cancer last September. It was awesome seeing all of the survivors and hearing how the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is dedicated to cutting edge research and treatments to find a cure.
Special Guest Speaker Dr. Pillarisetty, who is a Surgical oncologist who specializes in pancreatic cancer surgery. He has been at the University of Washington and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) for 10 years and serves as the medical Director of Continuous Performance Improvement at the SCCA. He has a research Laboratory where he studies the body’s immune response to Pancreatic Cancer and is developing new strategies to activate it against the cancer.
With the magic of Facebook, I was able to ask for online donations and my awesome Fans and family raised $175 for the Foundation, and the 2019 Seattle Walk raised over $30,000!
Thank you to everyone that donated

Special thanks to Lisa Crowley and Melissa Roeters for organizing such a fantastic fundraiser. I look forward to working with you again next year.
Wedding planning could be summed up as going through a HUGE "to do" list. An often stressful, seemingly never-ending, to do list. To help lessen the stress, there are many different websites and apps out there for busy couples to use as a "one stop shop" for most wedding planning tasks.
To help you save time, I’ve put together a short list of digital tools available to help guide and assist in planning your wedding day.
Enjoy, I hope you find one of these suggestions useful for help with planning YOUR wedding!

I can help your day come to life with music!
The songs in this list all have that sense of love and adoration that is "just right" for the occasion. Once you hear it…you'll know "the one." The best father daughter dance song for your wedding day is one that shows the bond between a dad and his “little girl.”
Any of these 10 songs are a great way to honor your father…while also carrying a good beat to dance to!
TASHA AND MIKE | DUPONT, WA
Located just outside of Dupont and not very far south of Tacoma, Sam Adams at Eagles Pride Golf Course sits hidden just off Interstate 5. The Eagles Pride Golf Course Event Center hosts weddings, private parties, and other events. Tasha and Mike chose to have their ceremony on the grass just outside the Event Center, saying “I Do” on a beautiful April day amongst family and friends.
Inside the Eagles Pride Event Center, the reception was set up and the dance floor was ready! After coordinating music for their short outdoor ceremony, I moved inside to bring the funk to the reception. Tasha and Mike had a great crowd. People of all ages…kids, adults, elders…everybody shook a little something and boogied down!
The night was a blast, and I’m looking forward to helping with a Sweet 16 for Tasha & Mike’s daughter soon. It makes me happy when couples are so comfortable with my service, that they wouldn’t hesitate to collaborate on future event music needs. Thanks guys, I appreciate you!
Congrats to Tasha and Mike on a beautiful day!
Tasha wanted to pick out most of these songs, but she did request my help with some parts of the process. For the Mother/Son dance, I helped the groom, Mike, by sending him a list of songs tailored to what I know so far about his style. From there, he and his mom enjoyed picking one to share their special moment!
This is a huge part of what I love about my job…making people happy!
IN THEIR WORDS
“We were SO lucky to have Joe, aka DJ Diph, at our April 2019 wedding! He was communicative and worked with me every step of the way to make our music something that was special to us…and unique to our crowd.
The music he played fueled the fun had by all on our wedding day! We would highly recommend DJ Diph if you are looking for fun, attentive, and affordable DJ.”
