It was a night of fancy flappers and dapper men as the West Seattle Food Bank held it’s 4th annual Speakeasy at the Sanctuary; a fundraiser for the local food bank that serves over 11,000 people in our community. There was plenty of gambling, tasty hors d’oeuvres, themed cocktails and an auction of frenzied bidding! A wonderful evening for everyone…
Had to make a quick trip to Ellensburg last weekend to drop off students from Poland at Washington Business Week (that’s another story). Can’t remember the last time or if ever I spent any time there. While this was a quick trip I did manage to do some sight-seeing! The town is home to several establishments that look like they are out of the 50s and still thriving. The backroads with the beautiful light and rolling hills made for an enjoyable ride. Reminded me of my days in New Mexico, cowboy hats, pickup trucks and coca cola.
And I don’t mean a bag of skittles! Skittles, a sweet 8 week old purebred Shih Tzu puppy found a new loving home at the Holy Rosary School Heart Auction this past Saturday. Among other items of great interest was the “Girls Night Out at Palisades,” and a signed Pearl Jam poster for $1800. It was a great evening of fun and high bidding – totaling over $220,000! Congratulations.
Carnival de FCC – Come Celebrate
March 24th was the 25th Annual Auction and Dinner for the Fauntleroy Children’s Center that benefits the children, families and staff of FCC. Many local celebrities were in attendance including Bob Watt, Auctioneer; King TV’s Jim Dever and former mayor Greg Nickels.
The “Carnival” theme was exciting with brightly colored banners and stilt walkers! But I think my favorite part is the Dessert Dash! Lots of money is raised as tables pool their monies to try and get their favorite desserts. Early on you could find guests studying the table and eyeing their first choice. No one was disappointed. I think this cake says it best:
Both the famous and infamous walked the red carpet at the Fauntleroy Children’s Center yearly auction. Once again Jim Dever was on hand to MC the evening filled with Oscar like glamour, good friends, good food, and lots of spending! To see all the auction photos click here!
Jim Dever and Ariel ham it up at the Fauntleroy Children’s Center 2008 Auction. Gail Ann was represented well by associate photographers Katherine and Ariel. Once again we offered photo sessions with proceeds going to the school! Congrats to those of you who purchased a session. We look forward to working with you soon!
