Supporters of Clothes for Kids, which provides wardrobes for low-income students in the Edmonds School District, enjoyed wine, cheese and appetizers (donated by the Resident Cheesemonger) Saturday night during a sold-out “Sip into Spring” fundraising event at Arista Wine Cellars and C’est La Vie.

Guests enjoyed a silent auction and a raffle, with all proceeds donated to Clothes for Kids. In addition, thanks to a sponsorship from Windermere Snohomish, all expenses were been covered and 100 percent of ticket sales directly benefited the organization, which has been assisting families with school clothes and accessories since 1984. Last year Clothes for Kids served more than 5,200 children.
