Help White Center Jubilee Days – Silent Auction & Spring Gala is this Saturday


The White Center Jubilee Days Silent Auction and Spring Gala will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. this Saturday, May 5th at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle.

“We are currently in the throes of raising crucial dollars for what we believe will be the best White Center Jubilee Days ever,” reads an announcement. “We have approached this year’s event with great ambition to reflect our feelings for the neighborhood and it’s amazing potential. Which brings us to JUBILEE DAYS SILENT AUCTION AND SPRING GALA, THIS SATURDAY! This fundraising extravaganza will feature fabulous entertainment, food from White Center businesses, a cash bar, a raffle, and wonderful items for your bidding pleasure.”

White Center’s Jubilee Days has been running for over 80 years, and is a celebration of our great neighborhood and is the result of true community effort. The production of Jubilee Days is ongoing. It takes about a year to organize, raise the funds, book the bands and vendors, and to manage all the behind the scenes business to get the festival off the ground, just in time to do it all again.

The MC will be Sarah Rudinoff, Stranger Genius Award recipient, considered an “all around superstar, always entertaining and will certainly put the F U N in fundraiser!”

Entertainment will include a performance by aerialist Jenna Lutton, a Capoeira exhibition from Capoeira Malês, crowd mover DJ Dr. Lehl, and there may also be a surprise or two up Organizers sleeves.

Big-ticket auction items include a pontoon boat for the avid fly fisherman and a ride-along with White Center’s own deputy BJ Myers!

House made hors d’oeuvres and small plates from Uncle Mike’s Barbeque, the Salvadorean Bakery, and El Paisano will be provided.

50/50 raffle with cash prize!

And did we mention cash bar with expert bar tenders? Full Bar available.

Also, there will be a fundraiser within a fundraiser! What? That’s right. We will have Big Al Hi-Yu Bru Pale Ale available for purchase, proceeds of which will be donated to a local charity.

Raising money for a good cause has never been so easy.
