Proceeds from The Green Gig Locally Grown benefit the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation’s Curious by Nature School. The fundraiser also benefits the program’s Stewards Scholarship Fund and the Foundation’s work in helping to bridge the early learning access gap in our community, say organizers.
“Since 2012, the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation has provided nearly $100,000 in support of early childhood education to help give all children, especially those in greatest need, the strong start they need and deserve,” say The Green Gig event planners.

The Curious by Nature School is part of the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization serving the greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula community. The school offers a one-of-a-kind, nature-based early-childhood program where children go outside to learn, explore and play every day, rain or shine, according to its website at Greater Gig Harbor Foundation.
Dr. Julie Ann Gustanski, President Emeritus of the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, is looking forward to bringing the annual benefit dinner and auction the waterfront venue at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.
“Thank you,” she told Club Hospitality Manager Danielle Taylor. “We are looking forward to our first event @ The Club!” said Gustanski.
