We are supporting multiple non-profits with this years event! Including catering from Fare Start and our location - Daybreak Star Cultural Center, which is located in Discovery Park. The venue is a large space, with great indoor and outdoor views of the park and the Sound.

We're currently looking for donations for the Dessert Dash. What is a Dessert Dash?
The dessert dash involves each table combining their bids to claim one of the delicious desserts available at the auction night event. The table with the largest bid gets first chance at dashing to the dessert table and picking the dessert of their choice! To get your chance at the most delectable, scrumptious dessert, simply complete the dessert dash card on your table the night of the auction! Be careful though… you’ll need bid high to be the first table called and be fast to get your favorite dessert because the next winning table number will be called quickly… thus, the DASH part of the Dessert Dash! For questions or donation, contact Daranee Oakley (email@example.com).
We're also looking for volunteers to help out on the day of the event.
