OUR MOST IMPORTANT FUNDRAISER!
Auction 2017










$pring for $eniors Auction & Dinner

Sunday, March 26 2017, at 5pm
Our sensational and highly anticipated $pring for $eniors Auction & Dinner is going to be here before we know it! The auction date is Sunday, March 26th at 5:00pm and is located at Leif Erikson Lodge. Put it on your calendars and make your plans now to attend, donate, or help.  Everyone can do something to make this the huge success we need it to be.  This is our biggest fundraiser.  Our goal is to raise $80,000 which includes making up for the $40,000 decrease in other support in 2017.  We can do it if we all pull together and 'go the extra mile'.  Please help us meet our goals!

Al Hovland is Auction Chair.  We have a great Auction Committee, but there is room for more to join this active group.  Contact Carlye or Al if you can be on the Auction Committee or want to know more about it.  There is an idea/wish list for donated items at the 2nd Floor Reception area.  We are always looking for vacation homes, experiences, gift cards, and cash pledges for our Match Fund A Need portion.

The event is fun with games to play, a Martini Bar and a Wine Bar, wonderful items to bid on, delicious dinners.  We already have some fantastic items including a 12-Day Holland American Cruise Line trip, a trip to a lovely Dude Ranch, an Ocean getaway, great restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, theme baskets, golf and lunch at Broadmoor Golf Club, sports event tickets, and more.

This is a great night to celebrate our Center.  Be a part of this important event!  Join in the fun and support your Ballard NW Senior Center.  Tickets are available Online, By Phone, or In-Person.
