Coming soon: Holly House’s Fundraising Gala set for Saturday at Mountlake Terrace Senior Center


Tickets are on sale for Holly House’s first-ever Fundraiser Gala on Saturday March 7 at the Mountlake Terrace Senior Center.

Holly House operates a holiday gift program serving low income families in the Edmonds School District.

The Gala will be from 6-9 p.m. Enter a Wonderland and meet Alice, The Queen of Hearts, and the Cheshire Cat – and have your picture taken with them.

There will be a live auction, plus a silent auction. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and dessert, plus a wine tasting. Dress: Semi-formal or Special Occasion.

Get an overview of the work that Holly House does. Meet some of the families and hear how Holly House has helped them. Meet some of Holly House’s volunteer team and make connections with local community members.

Holly House also will be selling raffle tickets for prizes. All proceeds of the event go towards operating costs for Holly House, and as its first large scale fundraiser Holly House is hopeful it will provide much needed funds to sustain administration costs, plus storage and procurement costs of holiday gifts and necessities for the 2,000 low income children supported in the Edmonds School District.

There will be a donation collection bin available; you can bring your favorite toy, sports equipment, or even socks and underwear (items for teens especially needed).

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased here. For more information check out the Gala Page.

If you are interested in donating any items for the auction or raffle, please email Holly House here or call Pam Martinez at 425-673-0526.
