From Elsie Hulsizer who is on the Board of Directors for Center for Wooden Boats:
Please join me at the Center for Wooden Boats’ 2012 Fund Raising Auction and Dinner Celebration, Steer by the Stars.
Date: February 18 5:00 pm.
Location: Seattle Design Center 5701 Sixth Avenue South, Seattle.
This is a fun event with a delicious dinner, a dynamic and entertaining auctioneer and lots of cool items to bid on. Donations are still coming in but I just heard that Dale Chihuly contributed a small glass sculpture. Past auctions have included cruises on Holland America ships and entire wooden boats.
For those with lower budgets the program includes a silent auction of smaller items. Past contributions have included a neon sculpture of a sailboat (I bought that one!), complete sets of code flags, nautical paintings and books, fine wines and many other intriguing things.
No matter what you buy, the proceeds will benefit the Center for Wooden Boats including their boat-building and sailing programs for at-risk youths.
To purchase a ticket ($100 per person) go to http://www.cwb.org/2012Auction or call (206) 382-2628 x22. If you accept my invitation, please tell them you would like to sit at Elsie Hulsizer’s table and/or with other members of NWWB. Let’s see if we can put together a whole table of NWWB members!
