As we reported last week, on Tuesday night (Aug. 31st), area residents held an auction fundraiser party at The Mark Restaurant for Jeanette Cunningham, the victim of a pit bull attack in Burien in July.

Jeanette “lost” her smile when she was attacked by a pit bull while crossing a street. Her face was disfigured in the attack, with the majority of the damage done to her mouth and chin area, caused by the dog jumping up and biting her face. She has had surgery, but will be needing more, and this event was held to raise money to help defray her day-to-day needs.

We’re happy to report that the event raised over $5,500 for Jeanette.

According to The Mark’s Debra George:

  • Over 120 people and businesses donated items.
  • At least 250 people showed up at the event.
  • One of the bigger raffle items was a private party for 15 at Howard and Marge in Olde Burien.
  • Jeanette was present, and she went around to each table, handing out thank you cards to each attendee.

Jeanette needs her “smile back,” and we hope that this event helps her get it.

Way to go B-Town for helping a neighbor in need!

Burien residents rallied and rasied over $5,500 for pit bull attack victim Jeanette Cunningham.
