Cool: Fremont’s most famous street dweller is teaming up with NW artist Betty Gimarelli to raise money to support Solid Ground.
He’s the Fremont Troll and his visage graces the 2010 Seattle Ornament™, continuing a 17-year tradition of commemorating Seattle’s best-loved landmarks with holiday ornaments designed by Gimarelli.
As in previous years, the ornament will be 24-karat gold-plated. The story of the Fremont Troll will accompany it. The Troll’s image is being used with permission of the artists.
The ornament will first be available at the Fremont Fair in Seattle, WA, June 19-20, 2010. The Fremont Fair, produced by Solid Ground for the past 38 years, has moved this year to the capable hands of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. Funds raised through the Fair benefit a number of area nonprofits, including Solid Ground!
This year, for each 2010 Fremont Troll ornament sold a the Fair, Seattle Ornament™ will donate 5% to Solid Ground.
The Fremont Troll Seattle Ornament and prior years’ ornaments will be available for sale at www.SeattleOrnament.com after the Fair. As always, the ornaments will be limited editions and hand numbered.
