With just a few weeks left to go, tickets are selling fast for the Edmonds Historical Museum’s gala annual Heritage Days event. Last year was a sell-out, and with ticket prices set to increase on Oct. 1, now is the time to get yours.
What is Heritage Days, you ask?
It’s a dynamite, fun-filled evening of raffles, auctions, a full dinner with hors d’oevures, beverages, desserts, music and entertainment. And it’s all for a great cause, to raise money for the Edmonds Historical Museum to help it continue and grow as one of Edmonds premier community assets. Money raised this year will help fund the ongoing renovations to the Museum’s home, expanding and maintaining the artifact collection, and the ongoing work of the museum as an active member of the community.
In addition to the live auction, a sumptuous dinner, the traditional dessert scramble and other fun activities you’ve come to expect, this year’s event will recognize and honor the Floretum Garden Club as the first group ever to receive the prestigious Edmonds Citizen of the Year Award, the Sno-King Chorale as they celebrate their 15th year, and the 20th and 21st anniversaries of Edmonds In Bloom and the Museum Summer Farmers Market respectively.
Here’s the details, so mark your calendars:
What: Heritage Days banquet and auction to support the Edmonds Historical Museum
When: Friday Nov. 13, 5:30 p.m. till 9 p.m.
Where: Holy Rosary Church Parish Hall, 630 7th Ave. N., Edmonds, WA
Tickets cost $65 if purchased before Oct. 1, and go up to $70 thereafter. Or purchase a table for $500 and invite your friends and family ($550 starting Oct. 1).
“The past two Heritage Days events exceeded all our expectations,” said Bill Lambert, president of the Edmonds-South Snohomish County Historical Society and Museum. “Both events sold out well in advance, and we’re looking to build on our successes this year. In addition to announcing the winners of this year’s Scarecrow contest, we’ve got some special surprises in store, including live, original skits featuring luminaries from Edmonds’ past courtesy of the Driftwood Players. So buy your tickets early and often, and come prepared for a fun evening!”
Purchase your tickets online, by phone at 425-774-0900, or in person at the Edmonds Historical Museum, 118 Fifth Ave. N. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday between 1 and 4 p.m.
