Our sensational and highly anticipated $pring for $eniors Auction & Dinner, Fall Edition is going to be here before we know it! 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 $100,000 which includes making up for the COVID gap and decrease in other support in 2021.

We can do it if we all pull together and ‘go the extra mile’.  Please help us meet our goals! We have a great Auction Committee, but there is room for more to join this active group.  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 great fun with games to play, a Martini Bar and a Wine Bar, wonderful items to bid on, delicious dinners.

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.

For 48 years Ballard NW Senior Center has provided outstanding programs and services to over 100,000 individuals. All auction proceeds go to support the programs and services of the Ballard NW Senior Center, which serves the needs of more than 4,000 seniors and their families in the Seattle area each year. The Center is a home away from home for many including hundreds of volunteers from every walk of life and every age from 5 to 95, who have become active in their communities. This is our main fundraiser for the year, and there are several ways you can get involved.

Join us at the beautiful Leif Erickson hall, where every year on more than 200 community leaders and business owners come together for the $pring For $eniors Auction. We are delighted you are going to be a part of this wonderful night. Our Annual Auction includes a live auction, silent auction, and a virtual auction, dinner, and more. There will be an amazing array of items to bid on. Please bid often and give generously, without your support, we wouldn’t be here! Enjoy this evening of delicious food, beverages, games, and fun!
