Auction Sneak Peek

We have some amazing Auction items this year!  This week’s highlighted items are…

Ballard, Bikes, Burgers & Brews

Leave your car at home and take a spin on your new RadWagon, a powerful electric cargo bike!  The RadWagon is the most affordable, feature-rich, and powerful electric cargo bike on the market and it’s got everything you need to get the job done, and then some.  As part of this amazing Live package, Vice Principal Pablo Kelley will spend an afternoon with you biking around Ballard. You can also enjoy $100 worth of Li’l Woody’s food!

Dinner with Chef Michael with Wine Pairings for Ten

For this wine pairing dinner, Chef Michael Strimban will prepare a delicious five-course meal of locally sourced seafood and your choice of prime cuts along with expertly prepared sides.  Michael and company will select the perfect wines from their estate vineyard for each course.  For this unforgettable event, Julie Clark will host ten people at her North Beach home on a date to be determined by the winning bidder and event hosts.

“Floral Mandala” by Mrs. Mansfield’s 3rd Grade Class

Paper quilling is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create a decorative design.  Mrs. Mansfield’s third graders each had their own color of paper strips that they rolled and were then shaped and put together to create a colorful, floral shaped mandala.  This 22′ x 22″ framed art piece would be a beautiful addition to any home and you will easily be able to identify each child’s individual art using the guide on the back.
