Seattle Center Fisher Pavilion
Silent auction starts at 5:30pm
Dinner served at 7:00pm
Help Washington Bikes shift gears for bicycle advocacy statewide by joining us at our annual fundraiser on October 22! Proceeds from this event support our advocacy and education efforts statewide. These funds help us deliver Safe Routes to School services to districts around Washington and make it possible for us to bring our Hub & Spoke events to bike advocates in their communities. They help us shift the gears of government policies and change the minds of legislators.
Fun is a given at the auction. Besides the silent and live auctions, there is a dessert dash, wine grab bag, and a split-the-pot raffle. Nearly 300 friends of bicycling attend this gala and there’s ample time to socialize, catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
We’re still accepting auction donations and we need a variety of items that will generate spirited bidding. We’d welcome any of the following donations and more: restaurant and retail gift cards, themed gift baskets, massages and spa treatments, yoga and pilates classes, acupuncture treatments, unique experiences, tickets to theater and sporting events, and cash donations. Use our handy online donation form to submit your information or contact Louise McGrody if you have questions.
Tickets are $70 each or $700 for a table of ten–if purchased by September 30. After that date, prices are $85/$850. Tickets may be purchased online, by check, or by calling Donna Govro at 206.224.9252 x300. Check our auction page for more details.
We rely on volunteers to help make this event a success. We need volunteers to help with event set up, clean up, registration, check out, serving food, and much more. Contact Matt Lyman if you’d like to help out.
Check our auction page for additional information or call 206.224.9252. We’re looking forward to seeing you on October 22!
