Dr. Jim Coleman’s ‘Stuffed Animals for Kids’ drive on now through Dec. 19

Friend of the blog and Advertiser Jim Coleman, DDS, and crew want to remind our readers that their annual Stuffed Animal Drive is off and running and will continue through Dec. 19.

These animals are for children who visit the Highline Medical Center Emergency Rooms.

Readers’ donations of stuffed animals will be greatly appreciated.

Every year at this time, the folks at Dr. Coleman’s office collect and deliver stuffed animals to Highline Medical Center’s Emergency Room. The huggable little buddies help calm children who visit the Emergency Room seeking care for injury or illness.

Please feel free to donate stuffed animals directly to Dr. Coleman’s office, during regular business hours, at 1800 SW 152nd Street in Burien.

Donations will be accepted through Dec. 19.

“We will deliver the stuffed animals to the ER a couple days before Christmas. So if you want to drop them by our office before then, that would be great! Let’s make those kids feel comfortable, loved and cared for in the best ER in the Seattle area!”

Dr. Coleman’s office phone number is 206-242-4477 and website is http://jimcolemandds.com.

BAT’s irreverant comedy ‘Bob’s Holiday Office Party’ opens Friday, Nov. 28

Bob-web-program

Celebrate the season with the irreverent comedy ‘Bob’s Holiday Office Party’ at Burien Actors Theatre, opening Friday, Nov. 28 and running through Dec. 21.

The show incorporates original live music before the show and at intermission.

In this comedy in which no cows are sacred, insurance agent Bob Finhead’s whacked-out friends and clients stop by his small-town Iowa office for their chaotic annual holiday bash. The town mayor, the twin farmers, the stoner who sees UFOs, the mayor’s clean-freak wife, the sheriff, the town floozy and the pastor’s wife have already RSVPed for this year’s raucous event. Will Bob live his dream of escaping to the big city to work as an inventor, or is his life’s purpose already under his nose? Will any of it matter once the party starts, and the inventions and the drinks hit the floor?

“Devastatingly funny!”— L.A. Times. The show has been a smash hit in L.A. for 18 years.

The show is suitable for ages 13-plus due to some adult language and content.

Ticket prices range from $7 to $20. New this season, student tickets are just $10. Bring nonperishable food for local food banks and get $2 off ticket–one $2 food donation discount per ticket. For tickets, special deals or other information, go online to www.burienactorstheatre.org or call 206-242-5180.
