Anita O'Sullivan weaves through the crowd with a large vase full of cash donations at an Oso Victim's Relief Benefit in Arlington on Friday, March 28, 2014. She and her friend Jennifer Starr had planned to celebrate O'Sullivan's birthday at The Krosswalk and decided to turn their plans into a benefit instead. "It didn't feel right to just be celebrating," said O'Sullivan. "We just wanted to come together in a place of hope and caring," Starr said, to celebrate life and remember those who have been lost. At the end of the night, they had raised about $4500 in cash through admission, donations and raffles, as well as two truckloads of donations of clothing, blankets and other supplies. All of the proceeds will go towards helping families affected by the disaster. LINDSEY WASSON/THE SEATTLE TIMES
