Instruments of Change 2016!
The Board of Directors and Staff of the West Seattle Food Bank would like to graciously thank our sponsors, donors, guests and our dedicated and hardworking volunteers for making our 9th Annual Instruments of Change Dinner/Auction such a huge success, raising over $131,500.
Over 200 guests joined us on Saturday evening, May 14th at The Seattle Design Center. This extremely fun event featured a hosted Happy Hour where guests enjoyed tossing a ring for a bottle of wine in the Wine Toss, tasting some fabulous Whiskey and bidding on unique Silent Auction items.
After sitting down for dinner, provided by Tuxedo and Tennis Shoes Catering, guests participated in a very energetic Heads or Tails for half the pot and a live auction where guests bid on Southwest & Spirit Airline tickets, trips to Vietnam, Italy, Sun Peaks, Cannon Beach, Willows Lodge OR Date Nights downtown, a Taco Party for 25 or a dinner party at Ma’Ono Fried Chicken & Whiskey. After a film produced by Huskinson Productions and a heartwarming talk by client & volunteer Ari Yoder, guests generously raised their paddles for those in the West Seattle community in need of a little help.
