Join the volunteers of Clothes for Kids, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing clothing to eligible children, at the first annual Celebrate the Children Luncheon and Auction. It will be held at Edmonds Lutheran Church located at 23525 84th Avenue West, Edmonds, WA on Saturday April 2 beginning at 11 am. The admission is only $10.00, but the event is sure to sell out so advance ticket sales only please.
The auction will feature items procured by the volunteers and combined into exciting baskets with something to suit the budget and interests of every attendee. Items will either be featured in the Silent Auction which will be open as soon as the attendees arrive, or in the Live Auction to be held after the luncheon is served. Some of the items up for bid will be gift certificates for local restaurants and museums; handmade quilts; themed baskets for Mother’s Day, Family Movie Night and a Wine Lover; and lots of great gifts for kids.
The luncheon will feature more than 20 homemade salads along with cupcakes and beverages. As a special bonus, attendees will receive a souvenir cookbook containing the recipes for the salads so they will be able to recreate their favorite ones at home.
“The volunteers have really come together in a great show of support to ensure this event is a success,” according to Nancy Laird-Burris, Program Manager for Clothes for Kids. “We have more than 50 auction baskets overflowing with incredible community donations. I couldn’t be more excited!”
Since 1984, Clothes for Kids has enhanced the learning environment by meeting the clothing needs of low-income children in Snohomish County. These services are provided to children in the community so they may arrive at school, ready to learn.
