The annual Phinney Neighborhood Auction is the highlight of our social calendar. We get to see hundreds of neighbors, eat good food and get in bidding frenzies over hot-ticket items. We always spend more than we think we will – yet we’re always happy that the money is going toward the PNA’s neighborhood programs.
This year’s auction – May 2, 5-10 p.m. – is themed Moulin Rouge, and once again the silent auction will happen inside the PNA’s blue building, with the frenzied live auction happening in the parking lot under a big tent.
Check out their Hot List page for some of the main live auction items. There are a ton of the usual great vacation and sailing packages, but three things really stand out: labor for creating a custom guitar (valued at $3,000); a 30-minute flight on a B-17 (valued at $800), plus a personalized ground tour by a WWII pilot; and a custom song written just for you by Chris Ballew, lead singer of the Presidents of the United States of America. How cool is that?!
Tickets are $50 person. You can make reservations online.
