The annual Third Place Commons Breakfast is Thursday, February 26th.  Tickets are still available for $45 seat, or you can bring your friends and colleagues to a table for 8 for $325.  Purchase yours at Third Place Books, or online here.

And if you are still on the fence, let us convince you with some great reasons to join us at this fun(d)raising event.

Here are just a few reasons why you should attend the Breakfast:

Reason #2: A lively and inspiring program, with Master of Ceremonies Allen Schauffler, and special guest Steve Scher, a familiar voice from his long career at KUOW.  Steve will interview Ron Sher, the visionary behind Third Place Books, and Anne Stadler, the founder of Friends of Third Place Commons.

Reason#3: Music!  Dr. David Shere of the Music Center of the Northwest will entertain us with music from the ’60’s.  This year, we celebrate the opening of the Town Center in 1965, and we can all get a little nostalgic together.  For those observant readers who are counting, yes, three of our special guests have a similar name: Scher, Sher, and Shere.

Reason #4:  Great Auction Items
