Less that a week away! You are invited to attend Clothes For Kids’ annual “Celebrate the Children” Auction this Saturday, April 28th. The event will be held at Holy Rosary Parish Center in Edmonds (630 7th Avenue N., Edmonds, WA 98020) from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Guests can browse the silent auctions before sitting down to a sweet treat from the dessert buffet, and then things will really heat up with the live auction! Our volunteers have put together so many fabulous items to bid on.
At the Celebrate the Children Auction last year, 290 community members joined Clothes For Kids at Holy Rosary in Edmonds and raised more than $47,000 to benefit Clothes For Kids and the School Wardrobe program.
The evening started with local pianist David Little entertaining the crowd during the silent auction. The event also featured a dessert buffet, wine and beer. Thanks to our donors Pinka Bella Cupcakes, Snoqualmie Ice Cream, Ste. Michelle Winery, Fremont Brewery and Langinuta Brewery.
The live auction kicked off with performances from local realtor Gus Mansour and Elvis impersonator Robbie Dee. During the live auction, Auctioneer Bill Foote kept the energy high and helped to generate more than $7,000 with 20 live auction items. Thanks to Thrivent Financial, Charlie’s Produce, Pacific Crest Savings Bank, Gerber Collision, Berkshire Hathaway, United Healthcare, Coastal Community Bank, Molina Health Care, and Dean and Allison Ferris, the Fund-A-Need raised more than $22,000 for our school wardrobe program.
