Tamara Bowman, Chewelah Insurance Office Manager, presented Sammy with $25 in Chamber Bucks as part of the award as well. Congratulations, Sammy!

In October 2012, Tamara campaigned for Justin Peterson, a local youth dedicated to raising money for Inland Northwest Honor Flight in the Safeco Community Hero Award. The program is a national contest and Justin was voted as one of two top recipients (votes were so close they awarded two), earning a total of $15,000 for INWHF through the program. INWHF sends veterans on Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials.
Additionally, Heather organized a group called “Heather’s Head Cases” in honor of friend, Heather Harrison Sugg, who grew up in Chewelah. Heather was diagnosed with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor in 2010. A benefit raised money, part of which was donated to the American Brain Tumor Association. Our group also participated in the Joggin for the Noggin fun run in Spokane for several years, raising money for the ABTA. That year and In the following two years, she sold Heather’s Head Cases shirts. For the first two years all profits were donated to ABTA. The third year all profits were donated to a local family whose son had brain cancer, sadly passing away last year. Heather took over the program in 2014, running it from her home in Federal Way, and donates the money to families in need that affected by brain cancer.
