Thanks to the generosity of Emmanuele Bizzarri and Caffe Umbria, who contributed the extra costs of sending the Marvin Oliver sculpture, “Sister Orca,” to Seattle’s sister city, Perugia, Italy. Many thanks to our favorite coffee! And thanks to Saleh Joudeh who helped make this happen.
Our appreciation also to those of you who responded earlier with offers to help. Sister Orca is now on its way to Perugia! A deligation from Seattle will be present at the dedication set for July 12, 2008.
Mike James, President
Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association
