Lundahl, Freeman head schools foundation gala


It's time to make reservations to attend the South Whidbey Schools Foundation's Gala, Dinner and Auction, Saturday, May 18, at the Useless Bay Golf & Country Club.

Proceeds fund innovative teaching projects at South Whidbey Schools. Organizers say it promises to be a fun-filled, inspiring evening, beginning with live music by members of the Langley Middle School Jazz Band, a social hour and silent auction.

Guests will be served dinner, either prime rib, salmon or a vegetarian option, and hear 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 will 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 unlike past years will include numerous items available for purchase, such as a hosted fresh Dungeness crab feast, a beautiful Iranian rug, exclusive club memberships, fine wines and luxury accommodation packages and more.

Tickets for the gala, along with a list of all items available for both the silent and live auctions, can be found at www.
