Jazz up an outfit for the upcoming South Whidbey School Foundation gala dinner and auction in May.
Proceeds from the evening fund teaching projects in South Whidbey schools, such as a physics experiment in household energy use at South Whidbey High School.
Beginning with live music by members of the South Whidbey High School jazz band, the evening includes a social hour, dinner and silent auction on Saturday, May 18, at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club.
Dinner will be either a prime rib, salmon or vegetarian dish, followed by a keynote address by Langley’s Music for the Eyes shop owner and world traveler Fred Lundahl, titled, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.”
As in past years, guests may also enjoy teacher-student presentations about the most recent innovative teaching projects funded by the foundation.
After dinner, Jim Freeman will serve as auctioneer for the live auction, which will include numerous items available for purchase, such as a hosted fresh Dungeness crab feast, an Oriental rug, exclusive club memberships, fine wines, luxury accommodation packages and much more.
Tickets for the gala cost $75, and along with a list of all items available for both the silent and live auctions, can be found at SWSFoundation.org.
