EntertainmentThe Arts Scene in Edmonds: Annual ECA gala a festive affair September 27, 2014 629 0 The Edmonds Center for the Arts was filled with eager bidders Saturday night during the annual ECA gala fundraising auction. Rick Steves was in attendance to announce his auction donation — a 7-Day European City Tour: Your choice of London, Paris, Rome or Istanbul. The package went for $7,000. The ECA Gala counts on volunteers to make it successful: Here, Lisa Helber and Jeannie Blair staff a bar featuring a signature cocktail. My Neighborhood News Network Advertising and Marketing Director Maggie Peterson, with her husband Rocky, also sits on the ECA board and chaired the auction procurement committee.
