Sneak a Peek at the Auction – And get your tickets before it’s too late!

The Third Place Commons Annual Fundraising Breakfast is just over a week away on Thursday, March 7th. And that means this is your last chance to get your tickets to this always fun and popular community event.

Each year the breakfast features a lively, fast-paced auction with a little something for everyone.

Fabulous dining experiences await foodies in the crowd during the Restaurant Frenzy portion of the event, including Jep’s Chef House, Prime Steak, the Seaplane Kitchen & Bar, and The Guest House, among many other favorites.

More the artsy, literary type? Readers will be duking it out for a coveted gift card to Third Place Books. Meanwhile, packages with tickets to 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre, and Village Theatre will be up for grabs for the theatre lovers.

If visual arts are your thing, you’ll want to throw your hat in the ring for a chance at a gift certificate from the Shoreline Lake Forest Park Arts Council’s Gallery at Town Center. And art-lovers are going to go gaga over two gorgeous paintings by artist Meenakshi Sinha, Forest Secrets (1) and its smaller companion piece, Forest Secrets (2).

If you love entertaining, you’ll want to take your next event up a notch by bidding on a live, two-hour performance by The Park Rangers Jazz Trio.

If you prefer a quiet retreat to the garden, then you can bid for the Great Garden Bundle, which features a two-hour consultation by none other than professional landscape designer Colette Highberger of Upright Homes and Landscapes. (Some of you will remember Colette from her beloved store Garden Essentia.)

Or maybe get both the jazz trio and the garden bundle, then plan a fabulous garden party for the summer!

Need a break from it all? How about six months of spa services from A Better Day Salon? Or take a fly fishing course from The Avid Angler to discover the most Zen of outdoor pastimes.

In addition to the auction, guest of honor Anne Stadler, a lifelong activist for peace and one of the founders of Third Place Commons, will be presented with the Friends of the Community Award.

Of course, the big day will also feature live music, a delicious breakfast from Honey Bear Bakery, and a great speaker in Mónica Guzmán, founder of The Evergrey and former writer/columnist for The Seattle Times, GeekWire, and The Daily Beast.
