Celebration for Bree Planned for March 10

Hometown Winter Olympian Bree Schaaf will be feted on Wednesday at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club.
The Kitsap County Bremerton Athletic Roundtable is throwing a party to honor the Bremerton bobsledder who combined with brakeman Emily Azevedo to place fifth at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Check out this story on Azevedo’s homecoming in Chico, Calif.
The celebration is open to the public — young and old — and will start with a 6 p.m. social hour followed by the dinner program at 7 p.m. Cost is $20 ($15 for KCBAR members) and includes dinner.
Team Schaaf/Azevedo hats and scarves will be raffled and auctioned along with other items. Autographed pictures will also be available.
Proceeds will go to Schaaf, who will soon begin the search for a job after training fulltime the past year. She’s already announced that she hopes to compete in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
The Olympic High grad was among a group of state Olympians to be honored at a noon rally at Westlake Mall in Seattle, and later at a function hosted by Gov. Chris Gregoire in Olympia today.
