The Krull Family’s annual “Dinner or Pardon” fundraiser has begun, so get some non-perishable food ready to go vote on whether to “eat” or “pardon” turkeys on display at their home in Normandy Park.

You can vote by making a food donation into one of two large buckets marked “Eat” or “Pardon.”

Transform Burien is the beneficiary again this year.

New Turkeys!

New this year – the turkeys! The ones previously used for several years have been retired and swapped out for younger, more spry turkeys.

According to the Krulls:

“The male (Tom) is a Bronze and the Female (Jenny) is a Narragansett. They are both heritage breeds so they are a little smaller than a traditional broad breasted production turkey.  They are 2-years-old and last spring hatched her first nest of 20 turkey chicks.”

The current “score” through Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2023 is:

  • Dinner: 117
  • Pardon: 165

A Pardoning (or might it be “Dinner”?) Ceremony will be held at the location on the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2023.
