Mark your calendar for the perfect blend of athletics, academics, music and community. The Edmonds-Woodway High School third annual auction and community party takes place on Saturday, March 19, from 5-10 p.m. at the Lynnwood Convention Center.
This year, all Edmonds-Woodway High School 501(c)(3) charitable support organizations – including the Parent Staff Organization – are part of the event. With the theme, “Go for the Gold…a Journey to the Top,” auction organizers invite the community to support tomorrow’s leaders: our student athletes, scholars and musicians.
“With yet more budget cuts pending, our school’s athletic, academic, music and extra-curricular programs rely heavily upon the support of local merchants and the entire community as a viable means of both financial and moral support,” said Matt Douglas, President-elect of the EW Athletic Booster Club.
“We’re grateful that the town of Edmonds understands these students are our future and believes that each child who wants to participate in sports, clubs and music should not be prohibited by cost,” said Auction Director Michael Cuzzetto. “The annual auction is a phenomenal event; and the proceeds this year will provide much needed resources to fund athletic, academic and music programs, as well as scholarships to cover fees required for participation. ”
The planning committee is in full gear and volunteers are needed and welcome. Tickets for this year’s auction are $50 (or $450 for a table of 10) if purchased prior to Feb. 15. After Feb. 15, prices will be raised to $60 for individual tickets and $550 for a table of 10. Your ticket includes the entire auction package along with a delectable sit-down dinner and your choice of entrée. There will also be a cash bar with your favorite libations.
