Auction Spotlight – Get tickets NOW for breakfast on 5/25

Our big Back in the Commons Again Annual Community Breakfast is coming up fast on Thursday, May 25th. That means time is running out to get your tickets for the return of this popular community event.

A lively, fast-paced auction will be the highlight of the event with none other than auctioneer Ken Carson, longtime field host for the Seattle Sounders FC (and the Seahawks before that), heading up the fun!

Are you a foodie? Great! There will be fabulous restaurant bundles highlighting the best eateries in Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, and Bothell. Plus wine aficionados will savour the half-case of assorted L’Ecole No 41 (Walla Walla) wines from L’Ecole Woodinville.

Theatre fans will find plenty to inspire them with tickets from the Fifth Avenue Theatre and Village Theatre, while music lovers – and folks who just love to entertain – will want in on the two-hour private event performance from The Upbeats jazz trio.

If visual art makes your heart beat faster, you’ll fall hard for the original painting by artist Meenakshi Sinha. “Back in the Garden Again” (30” x 40”, acrylic paint on stretched canvas) will bring the glorious, vivid colors of the garden into your home and keep them in perfect bloom all year round.

(Love “Back in the Garden Again” too much to wait or risk being outbid? You can buy it now for $400 by sending an email to Third Place Commons Executive Director Amy Whittenburg.)

​Garden lovers will also be enchanted by the Gorgeous Garden Bundle, which includes gift cards from Sky Nursery and Westlake Ace Hardware, plus a two-hour consultation from professional landscape designer Colette Highberger of Upright Homes and Landscapes.

Could you use a serene escape from the world? Or maybe a romantic getaway? Don’t miss your chance at a magical overnight stay including $50 dining credit at The Lodge at St. Edward Park!

Third Place Books gift card will offer a more literary getaway to avid readers in the crowd. And if you’d rather get out and about, your grand adventure awaits with an electric bike rental from Amped Adventure or a scenic seaplane flight over Lake Washington and Seattle with Kenmore Air.

Looking for something a tad more relaxing? How about a Paint & Sip evening of art and wine with a friend at Red Sky Gallery? Or take a fly fishing course from The Avid Angler to discover the most Zen of outdoor pastimes.

The big event will also feature a delicious breakfast courtesy of Honey Bear Bakery, live music, and presentation of the Friends of the Community Award to the Lake Forest Park Climate Action Committee. And in keeping with the theme, western wear is welcome!

Best of all, proceeds of the breakfast and auction provide vital operating funds for the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market and other programs of Third Place Commons. So don’t wait!

Get your tickets today for the Back in the Commons Again Annual Community Breakfast on Thursday, May 25th at 7 AM.
