During Edmonds Has a Heart now through Feb. 27, participants can shop and dine with downtown Edmonds merchants.

Fourteen merchants are holding the event to celebrate their recent donation of more than $2,500 to the Nick of Time Foundation, which helps ensure that local schools are equipped to handle sudden cardiac arrest.

Discount cards are now available at Cline Jewelers, Rogue, Nadia S Evening, Walnut Street Coffee, J. Rankin Jewellers, Comstock Jewelers, ZINC Art + Object, Edmonds Bookshop, The Wooden Spoon, HOUSEwares, Glazed & Amazed, Belly & Co., Epulo Bistro and Salt & Iron.

“February is more than just a month to celebrate love that comes from our hearts – it's also the month to recognize the health of our hearts,” Nick of Time executive director Darla Varrenti said after receiving the donation.

Rogue owner Kimberly Koenig and Glazed and Amazed owner Judy Salinas have spearheaded the donations and subsequent shopping event, organized through the Downtown Edmonds Merchant Association with funding from Ed!, the Edmonds Downtown Alliance.

“Many of us are already giving to school auctions and donating to community organizations, but it felt great to achieve something so much bigger than any one business could accomplish alone,” Koenig said.
