With a patriotic theme as a backdrop, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula is inviting the community to take part in its 29th-annual auction and dinner, “Red, White and You!”, set for Nov. 11 — Veterans Day — at the Carroll C. Kendall Unit, 400 W. Fir St., Sequim.
Event organizers will honor those currently serving their country as well as guests, board members and staff who have served. Military attire is welcomed.
Nearly 400 guests are expected to attend and bid on 200 auction items from our community and surrounding areas. Auction items include: jewelry, quilts, boots, fine wines along with restaurant and service gift certificates.
Dinner will be catered by The Cedars at Dungeness and will feature top sirloin and halibut with chimichurri or butternut squash stuffed with vegetables and herbs.
The evening’s master of ceremonies is Todd Ortloff, and featured speakers include organization leaders as well as featured speaker Ehmey Liggins, a club volunteer and mother of three club members.
Guests will be given the opportunity to “Bid for Kids” and make a gift to the clubs to support our after school programming.
The goal is to raise $300,000, event organizers say.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula serves 400 youth daily in the Sequim and Port Angeles area at two clubhouses.
To donate auction items, volunteer at the event or for more information, call 360-683-8095 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
