Sneak a Peek at the April 4th Auction (Get your tickets now!)

Get ready because our big Growing Our Community Garden annual fundraising breakfast is just about a week away on Thursday, April 4th. That means time is running out to get your tickets for the return of this popular community event.

A lively, fast-paced auction will once again be the highlight of the event, helmed by the one and only Ken Carson, longtime field host for the Seattle Sounders FC (and the Seahawks before that), heading up the fun!

Arts lovers will find plenty to love in this year’s auction, including a two-hour private event performance from the Upbeats Jazz Trio as well as tickets to some fabulous nights out from both the Fifth Avenue Theatre and Village Theatre.

Of course, in the year when the Friends of the Community Award honorees are none other than Roz Bird and the Secret Gardens of LFP Garden Tour Committee, you know there’s going to be a Gorgeous Garden Bundle on offer!  

This year’s bundle includes gift cards from Sky Nursery and Westlake Ace Hardware, a two-hour consultation from professional landscape designer Colette Highberger, and naturally, two tickets to the garden tour.
